Completion of at least 19 HON-designated credits with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or above in UI and honors coursework. Up to three Honors Course Contract credits may be applied toward the Core Award. Students who participate in a one-semester study abroad experience may receive an Honors Core Award by completing 16 rather than the required 19 UI Honors credits.
Students who have scheduling conflicts should see the program Director to discuss options. To avoid such conflicts, frequent advising as the student progresses toward completion of the core award or the certificate is strongly recommended.
Internships and Student Teaching
Students who will be away from campus for the greater part of a semester or academic year on an internship or a student teaching assignment are advised to consult the program director before leaving campus (preferably one year in advance) to work out appropriate credit substitutions.
