If so, we have developed an honors program that gives you the opportunity to turn almost any course into an honors course. An honors option course is designed by incorporating honors elements into a regular, non-honors course so that students who have been accepted into the honors program can earn honors credit for completing that course.
The Honors Program at LSUA admits students as new freshmen, as well as current and transfer students. Admission to the Honors Program is designed to attract a broad range of academically talented students with the potential for academic excellence and leadership.
There are many benefits to joining our honors family. Some of the benefits are:
All honors students' transcripts will be reviewed each summer by the Honors Program Committee. To maintain honors status, students must:
To earn honors designation at graduation, students must complete 18 hours of honors course work in their respective majors. Of the required 18 credit hours, six (6) credits must be at the 4000 level and six (6) credits must be at the 3000 level.
Honors students who fail to meet any of these requirements will be given one semester of probation to correct any deficiencies. Honor students who fail to meet requirements after a semester of probation will be dismissed from the program. The Honors Program Committee (or a subcommittee thereof) will make the final decision about probation and dismissals.
One goal of the honors program is to meet the challenge of all students who are motivated to achieve academically. As such, the Honors Program is open to students who have excelled in high school.
