What is the nature of our Honors Program?
Honors is an open-access program. Students self-identify by earning at least a B in ENGL& 101 and then successfully completing certain initial Honors courses (HUM 195 HN and HUM 196 HN). Once they meet the established criteria they will fill out a brief application form and will be automatically accepted into the program.
