Recurring Requirements

  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.25, or above, at the end of every spring quarter.

    The Honors elective requirement is only applicable only for those students who joined Honors as first-year or second-year students. Students who joined Honors as third-year or transfer students are welcome to take Honors electives, but are not required to do so. For students that join University Honors as incoming freshmen, RLST012H/ETST012H and HIST010H/HIST015H/HIST020H will not count toward elective requirement.
  • Honors Counselors are available for additional meetings all year, but you must meet with them in the specified quarter to fulfill the requirement.
