About the Program

Make A Gift

The Winthrop Honors Program has evolved into one of the university's most exciting offerings. The program requires completion of at least 24 hours of honors courses, a senior Honors scholarly project,  and a service learning course or project. To receive honors credit for a course, the student must complete the course with a grade of B or better. A cumulative GPA of 3.30 is required to enroll in honors courses.

Advantages of participating in the Honors Program include small, intensive, interactive Honors courses, Honors advising, and academic support. Honors Program students are also provided honors residence hall accommodations with other Honors students, priority registration, and Honors recognition and regalia at commencement.
