College Scholars Honors Program

The College Scholars Honors Program provides high-achieving students from all academic disciplines the opportunity to expand and demonstrate their knowledge beyond the classroom. The program complements a student’s major studies and progressively layers camaraderie, academics, leadership and exploration to form a community of excellence. College Scholars graduate with an enhanced academic profile and are well-prepared for the next step in their careers.

Each student in the program who completes the curriculum and maintains both a cumulative GPA and an honors GPA of 3.00 or higher is recognized as a “College Scholar” at commencement and on all official transcripts distributed by the Office of the Registrar.
