Honors Requirements

Membership in the Honors Program permits students to take Honors courses and to participate in Honors Program activities and cultural events.

In order to graduate with the Honors Program distinction, however, and to have Honors Program Completed noted on their transcripts and diplomas, students must complete the following requirements:

  1. H-ECG 100, Honors Engagements with the Common Good (completed by first-year Honors students in their first semester at the University)
  2. COL 101, College Success Seminar (completed by first-year Honors students in their first semester at the University)
  3. Other designated courses required for first-year Honors students in their first two semesters at the University
    These courses will be selected by the Honors Program and may reflect different themes and subject areas each year.
  4. A total of four Honors courses beyond H-ECG 100 and COL 101
    Students must achieve a minimum grade of "B" or higher in each of these courses. They must take at least one honors course each academic year, in addition to meeting with the program co-directors at least once each year to assess their progress.

Most successful Honors students take more than the minimum number of Honors courses, and students are encouraged to take courses across a range of majors and disciplines. The courses described in requirements 1-3 usually meet general education requirements expected of all Cabrini students; these are Honors-specific courses completed by Cabrini students. In other cases, these courses represent Honors-level elective courses in their home departments.

Students who join the program after their first year at the University may have Requirements 1, 2, or 3 waived, upon approval of the program director.
