Scholarships & Honors Diploma
The Honors Program awards several merit-based scholarships worth up to $500 a year and renewable for three years. All incoming freshmen who have joined the program are automatically considered for a scholarship without submitting an application. The Honors Office will notify the recipients. The Gordon and Rose Lee Goldberg University Honors Scholarship is a merit-based award worth $1000 and given yearly to a junior in the program. The selection criteria involves:
- The intent to complete the Honors Program
- Community or volunteer service to the Honors Program, and
- The maintaining of acceptable academic performance.
An Honors diploma is awarded to those students in the program who have met all college requirements, completed at least 21 credits in Honors coursework with a grade of "B" or higher, attained a minimum cumulative quality point average of 3.25 and completed the service component. A grade of "C" (or lower) will not count toward Honors credit. Students are not required to pursue an Honors diploma to take a class although it is strongly encouraged.
