  HONORS PROGRAM

EXCEED YOUR OWN EXPECTATIONS

Admission Procedures
Qualified students are encouraged to submit an application for admission into SJR State's Honors Program to the Office of Arts and Sciences. The Office of Arts and Sciences will verify program eligibility and admit students into the Honors Program. Upon admittance, students will receive information on how to register for the course Honors Disciplinary Explorations (IDS 1110), which is required as an orientation course for all students entering the Honors Program. Not all Honors courses will be offered each semester. The course schedule will reflect Honors course availability.

Requirements to Continue in the Honors Program
Students must maintain a minimum cumulative 3.5 college GPA in order to remain in the Honors Program. If a student’s GPA falls below 3.5, the student will be placed on Honors Program probation and will be given one semester to achieve the required cumulative GPA.

Honors Program Completion
To complete the honors program and receive graduation and transcript recognition, the student must complete the 3 credit course IDS 1110 Honors Explorations in addition to 9 other credit hours of honors coursework and perform 40 hours of community service which should involve general community service and service to the College community.

The Office of Arts and Sciences will approve and maintain documentation of the community service. Honors students will be responsible for contacting the Office of Arts and Sciences by the deadline to apply for graduation to ensure they receive Honors graduation and transcript recognition.

Honors Courses
Honors courses will be developed by full-time professors of the College based on their interest and student demand. The following have been suggested, but this is not intended to be a definitive list. The courses should be from the fields of Communications, Humanities, Mathematics, Social Science, and Science:
