The Honors Program is a program of study for high-achieving on-campus students.

Full-time, degree-seeking, on-campus students may also gain admission to the Honors Program after completing one or more semesters of coursework (i.e. at least twelve credits) with a college GPA of at least 3.3. Transfer students are eligible for the Honors Program after transferring in at least 30 college credits with a college GPA of at least 3.3. Students transferring credits from within the University of Minnesota system are eligible for the Honors Program after transferring in at least 30 credits with a GPA of at least 3.3. Other talented students may be invited to the program based on their leadership, research/creative work, and/or commitment to equity and diversity. Completion of the Honors Program requires 15 credits including nine credits of required courses (see the draft of proposed curriculum below). Students must achieve an overall college GPA of at least 3.3 and complete at least 60 credits at the University of Minnesota Crookston in order to be recognized as an Honors Program graduate. Students transferring credits from within the University of Minnesota system must complete at least 30 credits at the University of Minnesota Crookston and an additional 40 credits within the University of Minnesota system. These students must achieve a final GPA of at least 3.3 in all University of Minnesota coursework in order to complete the UMC Honors Program. Students who complete the Honors Program will be recognized in the Commencement Program, and completion of the Honors Program will be noted on the studentís official transcript. Honors students have access to the Honors Lounge, located in Evergreen Hall. Students wishing to enroll in an Honors course must be admitted to the Honors Program. If open seats in an Honors course remain, other students may register for the course with instructor permission and a recommendation from the studentís advisor. Honors coursework is interdisciplinary and emphasizes critical thinking, leadership, and writing, in a global context. The Honors Program requires students to produce original research, scholarship, and/or creative work via the required Honors Thesis. Students may also use Undergraduate Research courses as Honors Program electives. The Honors Program encourages Study Abroad; although Study Abroad is not required, one or more Study Abroad courses will count toward the required 15 credits. Please note, honors program admission decisions are University of Minnesota campus-specific. Students who transfer between campuses and wish to remain in an honors program would need to apply and be admitted to the honors program at the transferring institution (where applicable).
