An honors course requires a grade of at least a C to satisfy Honors Program requirements. Honors courses with lower grades may still fulfill general education or elective requirements but not Honors Program general education requirements. An honors scholar must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 for all courses and of 3.25 for all Honors courses prior to enrolling for Honors Scholarship (UHNR 464) units. A student is no longer allowed Honors status when the cumulative grade point average for all courses is below 3.25, or when the cumulative grade point average for all Honors courses is below 3.00.
Total units required: 72 - 99 quarter units
