To be admitted to the Departmental Honors Program, students must have completed a minimum of 60 semester hours of course work (including transfer credit) with a 3.50/4.00 cumulative grade point average. Students admitted to the program must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.50. Students dismissed from the program because their cumulative grade point average has fallen below 3.50 may petition for readmission. Students must raise their cumulative grade point average to 3.50 by the end of the term immediately following dismissal for reinstatement.

Total Semester Hours 12

Students must take at least three credit hours in Honors Thesis, nine additional credits in Biological Sciences Honors courses, and complete all other requirements for the major. Honors Thesis supervision will be undertaken by a faculty member and must be approved by the Departmental Honors Coordinator. Credits in honors courses will replace 12 credit hours of electives in the major.
