Honors Eligibility and Enrollment
Students who are enrolled in the honors program in the Fisher College of Business have the opportunity to enrich their program of study through honors or upper division General Education Curriculum course work, to apply for special honors programs in Fisher College, to participate in programming that is offered through the Honors & Scholars Center, and to apply for honors housing. In addition, honors students receive priority scheduling.
Having honors enrollment does not entitle students to receive Latin or College honors at graduation. The only way to graduate “with honors” from Fisher College of Business is to be selected for and successfully complete the Accounting Honors Program, the Business Administration Honors Cohort Program, or the Business Administration Honors Contract Program.
For more information on Latin and College honors, visit the Recognition for Academic Achievement page.
The following requirements apply to students earning honors enrollment beginning Autumn 2012:
Maintaining Honors Enrollment
In order to maintain honors enrollment, students must meet the following criteria:
Upper division enrichment courses are defined as 4000 and 5000 level General Education Courses. Upper division business core courses are not considered upper division for the purposes of maintaining honors status, since these upper division courses are taken by all business students (honors and non-honors). Substituting an upper division course for a General Education Course requirement must be approved by an honors advisor.
For a sample list of honors courses and the semesters in which they are typically offered, visit the University Honors & Scholars site.
Reviews of academic records are conducted each summer (beginning after the freshmen year) to confirm that students meet the criteria. Students who transfer into Fisher College of Business from other academic units will be reviewed for honors eligibility at the point of entry. These students must meet with an Honors advisor within their first semester of enrollment in Fisher College.
