Good standing

In order to be in good standing with The Honors College, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, as well as enroll in at least one honors course or module each academic year.

In order to be considered an active member in the honors community, students must be in good standing, as well as attend at least three Berglund Honors Seminars each semester. Your activity level and responsibilities in The Honors College may impact your privileges as an honors student.

If your cumulative GPA drops below a 3.5, The Honors College will place you on honors probation to allow you one semester to pull up your cumulative GPA, provided it is mathematically possible for you to do so. If it is not mathematically possible to do so or if you fail to pull up your cumulative GPA to a 3.5 or higher during your probationary semester, you will be notified that you are no longer a member of The Honors College.
