Honors Academics 

UHP LogoThe University Honors Program recruits and supports the highest potential students at the University, and provides them with challenging and enriching curricular and co-curricular experiences. The program supports honors sections of existing departmental courses, which are led by experienced, and ever increasingly, award winning faculty.

First-year students are required to achieve a 3.25 GPA by the end of their first academic year. Students in the second, third, and fourth years of the program are currently required to maintain a 3.5 GPA to remain in the program. Students who had particularly challenging circumstances that do not meet the GPA requirement may be allowed to appeal to remain in the program with the approval of the Director.
