Honors Academic Standing

Good Standing
A student is in good standing with the Honors College with an overall grade point average that is at least 3.30.

Academic Probation
Whenever a student’s grade point average is below 3.30, the student will be placed on academic probation status with the Honors College, and be asked to meet with an Honors advisor. If the overall GPA is 3.30 or above at the end of the probation semester, the student will return to Good Standing in the Honors College.

After one semester on academic probation, students who fail to achieve a 3.30 overall grade point average will be dismissed from the Honors College. Students who receive a GPA below 3.00 for courses they take in their first semester at Marshall will be dismissed from the Honors College.
