Admission to Honors involves established criteria of academic success, but highly motivated students will be considered. Students complete their general education and departmental requirements for graduation in a degree program in other schools of the university. The additional requirements of the Honors College allow them to graduate as Honors College Scholars or Honors College Scholars with University Honors. (See Graduating through the Honors College for more information.)
Students may become participants in the Honors program in one of three ways:
Students who fall into one of these three categories may join the FHU Honors program upon

To apply for membership in the Honors College, eligible students must complete an application packet through the Honors Office. All students in the Honors College are required to earn at least 18 honors credit hours.
Continuation in the Honors College with "good standing" requires:
Students who fail to earn an H grade - A with honors - during a full-time semester (except for a semester spent studying abroad) will be placed on probation during the next academic semester. Removal of probation requires successful completion of honors course work during the semester of probation. Probation for other reasons such as those associated with school regulations can only be removed with the approval of the Dean of the Honors College.
Failure to remove probation or maintain at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA results in suspension from the Honors College and loss of associated privileges. Students suspended from the Honors College may apply for reinstatement after one semester of absence if the student returns to the appropriate GPA and/or an H grade has been earned, and if other changes have been made to satisfactorily address the circumstances of the suspension. Reinstatement requires the approval of the Dean of the Honors College.
