Advising and Registration

Information regarding a student's honors program progress and status is available for via the JayWeb advising module under "Grad Report/Degree Audit."  Students who have advising questions about completion of the program requirements should schedule an advising appointment.


Program Requirements

Honors Students must complete 24 honors credits (typically six 4-credit courses) over their four years at Elizabethtown College, including First-Year Seminar, Interdisciplinary Seminar, Leadership Theory and Practice, and a Senior Thesis in the student’s major or minor. In addition, students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50 to remain in good standing and be eligible for certain program privileges.

Students whose GPAs are below 3.50 but above the cut-off for their class (based on semester enrolled or number of credits completed) are still members of the program, but on probation. Students dropping below the cut-off for their class will be removed from the program. Students who regain a qualified GPA may petition the Honors Committee for readmission to the program.
