UHP Membership Privileges, Policies & Responsibilities
with Honors


Good Standing

You maintain your membership in Honors by being in “Good Standing,” which means that you have a GPA of 3.5 or above and are demonstrating regular progress toward your fulfilling your College Honors Requirements: Honors courses, seminars and other curriculum components, your Program of Study, Honors Project proposal and presentation. Students whose GPA falls below this minimum are given a semester’s probation to improve their academic standing sufficiently to retain their Honors program membership.

Pass/Not Pass Policy for Honors Students

As an Honors student, you may not take any course Pass/Not Pass unless you have received approval in advance from your college's Honors committee. (Pass/Not Pass is not the same as Satisfactory/Fail, you can read about it here).
