Honors Curriculum Requirements

To graduate from the Honors College, students must complete our curriculum with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.25. Students that have already completed many of their Disciplinary Lens courses may work with advisors to substitute Honors DL requirements with either additional Colloquia classes or any of our Alternative Coursework options.
