Criteria for Sustaining Membership

An active member in good standing in the University Honors Program must maintain a UI 3.3 cumulative GPA and must complete:

  • 6 graded honors credits by the end of the second semester
  • 9 graded honors credits by the end of the fourth semester
  • 12 graded honors credits by the end of the sixth semester
  • 14 graded honors credits by the end of the eighth semester in residence on the Moscow campus

Students may substitute 3 to 6 Honors academic or experiential points for Honors course credits when completing either an Honors Core or Honors Scholars Award.

Semesters that students spend studying abroad or on domestic exchange are not counted against the determination of membership.

Students who do not meet the minimum GPA and/or credit requirements for program membership are automatically placed on probation for one semester and then become an "inactive" member. 

“Inactive” Honors students, with a 3.3 GPA, are welcome to renew their Honors Program membership and to enroll in future honors courses by going to “Current UI Students” under Admission and completing the requested information.  No essay is required to renew membership.

“Inactive” Honors students may also request to remain on the honors email list by contacting

Scheduling Conflicts

Students who have course scheduling conflicts should see the program director to discuss options. To avoid such conflicts, frequent advising 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.
