Maintaining Honors Eligibility

GPA Requirement

Honors Eligibility, or good standing in the Honors College is defined as the achievement of a prescribed minimum grade point average (GPA) or higher upon the student’s completion of a specified number of semester hours at UNCG. To be in good standing in the Honors College an International Honors students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 after completion of 15 semester hours, 3.15 after 30 semester hours, and 3.3 after 45 semester hours. A Disciplinary Honors student must maintain a 3.3 GPA after the first semester in the program.

Honors Eligibility and Honors Benefits

Only those Honors students who remain in good standing will be eligible for Honors benefits such as: Honors housing, the Honors Travel Grant for International Honors students, and consideration for Honors Scholarships. Student who complete all program requirements but do not have at least a 3.3 cumulative UNCG GPA will not graduate with Honors in either the International Honors Program or the Disciplinary Honors Program.

GPA Review, Administrative Action, and the Dean’s List

Honors student GPAs are reviewed at the end of each semester. A student who is not in good standing may receive a warning or be put on probation. Students on probation may continue to take Honors courses but must achieve a semester GPA of 3.3 or higher in the semester following probation in order to avoid possible administrative removal from the College at that time. Students who earn a 3.9 cumulative GPA will be placed on the Honors College Dean’s List for that semester.
