The Honors Program includes both academic and non-academic activities
The Honors Program requirements are designed to promote both professional and personal growth. They provide a loose framework in which you have a great deal of choice, so your honors experience can be tailored to your interests and fit easily in your degree program.
Incoming students are expected to complete at least 3 honors points in their discipline, at least 3 points in general education, and at least 9 additional honors points, for a total of at least 15 points.

Requirements for students who enter through the Internal Admission process are determined by their first full academic year in the program. For example, candidates accepted in the spring of 2022 are considered part of the cohort that enters in the 2022-2023 academic year.

What is Complementary Learning?
Complementary Learning is about growth that happens through out-of-class experiences in leadership, service, volunteerism, and critical thinking. By participating in activities within the larger community, students integrate knowledge, practice problem-solving, exercise leadership skills, and develop the soft skills that are needed in their future careers.
New students are asked to complete 15 hours in the first year. Returning students complete at least 20 hours each year.
