Hello, future Honors Program student!
You’ve arrived on the page where you “declare honors.”
Before you declare, we have a few important things to mention. Don’t worry—it
will only take a minute!
First, please remember: Only incoming students who have been invited to the Honors Program or current Columbia students with a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher can declare honors. (Questions about this? Contact us.)
With us so far? Good. Once you declare honors, you are committing to completing 15 credit hours that carry the Honors designation. These courses are, at present, only offered in the LAS Core Curriculum and have an "HN" after the course number in the OASIS course catalog.
Students who successfully complete 15 credits and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher in all courses will have the designation "Honors Program Graduate" on their transcripts upon graduation. Please remember that this distinction is different from Latin Honors: Summa cum Laude, Magna cum Laude, and Cum Laude.
Sound good? Then join the Honors Program below! Simply enter your OASIS ID and birth date. If you have any questions, please contact us.
