Policies and Performance Assessment in the Business Honors Program
At the end of every semester, the Honors Programs evaluate student performance. If your current grade point average (GPA) is a 3.25 or greater and you have not gone more than one semester without taking an honors course, you are a member in Good Standing within the Fox and University Honors Programs. Students in good standing may continue to take honors courses. If you do not hear otherwise from an Honors staff member, you may assume that you are in good standing.
Students in Honors must complete at least: • 3 Honors classes by end of freshman year • 6 Honors classes by end of sophomore year • 8 Honors classes by end of junior year. Students who are not meeting satisfactory academic progress for Honors will be notified and asked to communicate back to the program. If the student does not respond by the date indicated in the correspondence, they will be dismissed from the Honors Program resulting in losing all Honors-related academic and financial benefits. Note: These progress benchmarks do not apply to students who transfer into the Honors Program, though transfer students should be taking Honors courses at a similar pace.
Students must maintain a 3.25 cumulative GPA to be in Honors good standing, thus remaining in the Honors Program. Cumulative GPA is reviewed annually (after spring semester grades are posted) and students that don’t meet the 3.25 GPA requirement are subject to dismissal from the Honors Program. Students who raise their cumulative GPA back to 3.25 or higher after being dismissed should contact the University Honors Program to ask for reinstatement. Dismissal from the Honors Program results in losing all Honors-related academic and financial privileges.
Please note that if you are demitted from Honors at any point, any Fox scholarship offered at the time of admission will be rescinded.
All of these regulations are aimed at doing everything we can to help students reach high levels of academic success. Remember, at all times we expect you to be full-time, matriculated students. If you have any questions about any of the policies, please see the staff in the Fox Honors office.
