As an Honors College student, you must complete all core requirements for the Honors College, for your academic school of enrollment, and for your chosen majors(s)/minor(s). If you are not graduating from one of our six schools: SAS, SEBS, RBS, SOE, MGSA or EMSOP, you must meet with your HC Adviser to discuss your options before the capstone proposal deadline.
Students who complete all Honors College requirements will have the designation "Honors College Scholar" on their diplomas and will receive the Honors College Medal. For more information about school- and major-specific requirements, please refer to the individual school and departmental websites.
