The Muriel A. Howard Honors Program admits students who have excelled in high school or early in their college experience. It is an academically rewarding experience that includes engaging speakers and social events, priority housing in a newly renovated residence hall, priority registration, and access to an honors study suite and computer lab. Students in this program may be rewarded with scholarships and awards and follow a specially designed curriculum that transforms their college experience. Honors students are required to maintain a minimum 3.3 cumulative GPA and complete seven honors courses that include 1-credit freshman and senior honors seminars and five specially designed general education courses. An applied learning component (research, creative project, internship, service project, or study abroad) is also required and is often satisfied through major requirements.
