USF 2004-2005 Undergraduate Catalog - Page 16
Superior students in all majors may avail themselves of Honors opportunities at USF’s Tampa campus. The Honors College Four Year Track is designed for first-time-in-college students. The Two Year Track is designed for transfer or upper-level students. These exciting experiences are grounded in the liberal arts tradition and intended for students regardless of major. The primary goals of the Honors College are the development of critical thinking skills, an appreciation of the liberal arts tradition and the development of creative, independent thought. (See complete description in Honors College.)
Potential Honors College Four Year Track students are actively recruited, but any interested student who feels that he/she is qualified may request admission. Students typically have 3.7 high school GPAs and 1270 SAT I or 29 EACT scores. Many scholarships are available for Honors students.
Potential Two Year Track students are actively recruited, but any interested student who feels that he/she is qualified may request admission. Students typically have 3.50 college GPAs and 1200 SATI or 27 EACT scores. Many scholarships are available for Honors students.
Departmental Honors opportunities are available in selected departments that wish to offer Honors-level work for superior students majoring in their disciplines. Requirements vary according to department, but all require the completion of a Thesis. Students may enroll in both the Honors College and Departmental Honors. Students in both programs are required to complete only one thesis.
Admission to the Honors College is determined by the University Honors Committee and the Dean of Honors; admission to Departmental Honors is determined by the individual department. Students who satisfactorily complete Honors and graduate with at least an overall GPA of 3.3 and a USF GPA of 3.3 shall be identified as Honors College Graduates at Commencement as well as on their diplomas and transcripts.
USF St. Petersburg has an Honors Program. For additional information, phone (727) 553-3103.
