Honors Graduate


Honors Learning Contracts: Through an Honors Learning Contract, an instructor and a Honors student agree on a more intensive and extensive exploration of course material in a non-Honors course. By successfully fulfilling the agreement spelled out in the Learning Contract, the student will receive Honors credit for the course pending approval from the instructor.

Honors Thesis/Capstone/Creative Achievement: At the conclusion of your undergraduate career, you will complete a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor designed to deepen your mastery over your discipline and prepare you for a career or graduate school in your field.

JSHC Policies

GPA Warning & Ineligibility Policy: This policy enforces the expectations the JSHC holds for Honors students relative to the UToledo cumulative GPA. It outlines steps that will be taken for students with grades that threaten their ability to earn College Honors by the time of graduation. In short, first-year and sophomore Honors students are expected to maintain at least a 2.75 whereas junior and senior Honors students are expected to maintain at least a 3.0. This policy is enforced by the Honors College after each Fall and Spring semester.

Curricular Good-Standing Policy: This policy defines satisfactory curricular progress toward the Honors medallion as well as a timeframe for review. These guidelines for taking "HON" core courses and earning Honors credits are established relative to the student's degree-granting college and are enforced by those units in coordination with the Honors College each Summer.
