To graduate with an Honors Scholar notation on their diplomas and transcripts, students must finish with a composite GPA of 3.5 or higher and complete the following Honors Scholar Program requirements:
- Earn at least a B in two honors courses within their major, which are typically done by contract. Participation in contracted honors courses involves an extension of the syllabi. Individual professors should be contacted about taking their course for honors credit. A Petition for Contracting a Course for Honors Credit must be submitted the second week of the course. A student with a double major may contract one course in each major or two courses in the major of their primary interest.
- Earn at least a B in two honors courses outside their major.
- Earn at least a B in any two honors courses of the student’s choosing, bringing the total number of honors courses on the student record to six.
- Fulfill a service learning requirement during their time at ENC and complete a piece of original research suitable for presentation at the annual Academic Symposium during the time that they hold junior or senior standing at ENC.
Students are responsible to register for courses, complete program requirements, and verify their status as an Honors Scholar with the Honors Scholar Program. If you have any questions, email . For questions about the college, please visit the Admissions website.
