Students in the Family and Consumer Sciences Honors Program must maintain an overall GPA of 3.50. Students who have been dismissed from the program because their overall GPA has fallen below 3.50 may petition for readmission. Students must raise their grade-point average to 3.50 and submit their petition to the Dean of the Honors College and Departmental Honors Coordinator.

Procedures:
Student petitions must be submitted to the School of Family and Consumer Sciences’ Honors coordinator who will in turn submit the request to faculty in the appropriate subject matter area. Requirements within the student’s subject matter option and the School of Family and Consumer Sciences’ core curriculum will have to be addressed and satisfied before approval is recommended.
