817. Honors with the Bachelor's Degree

(Am. 3.83)

Members of the Academic Senate who are members of the department or group in charge of each major constitute the Committee on Honors for that major. Each such committee is delegated the authority to prescribe criteria for enrollment in the Honors Program of that major and criteria for honors with the Bachelor's Degree, subject to the approval of the College Committee on Courses of Instruction and Academic Programs, Regulation A270, and the following: (CC. 3.21.93)

  1. At any time not later than the first semester of the senior year, a student may be enrolled in the Honors Program if the student has a grade-point average of 3.00 or higher overall and 3.30 or higher in the major program, and meets further conditions as the Committee on Honors for that major prescribes. In special cases, other students may so enroll by permission of the Committee on Honors of that major.
  2. A student must have completed the Honors Program of a major to be eligible for Honors with the Bachelor's Degree.
  3. Honors with the Bachelor's Degree are of three kinds: Honors, High Honors, and Highest Honors. The criteria to be used in determining whether students receive honors at graduation and the level of honors to be awarded are determined by the department or group in charge of the major. However, to graduate with Honors in the major, students must have an overall grade-point average of 3.30 or higher on their record in the University.
  4. Candidates who receive Honors with the Bachelor's Degree shall be so designated in their diplomas and in the List of Certificates, Degrees, and Honors, together with specification of their respective major programs and grade of Honors.
