Graduation from the Honors Program

While challenging in scope, the Honors Program does not increase the number of credits required for graduation. The Honors Program does not offer a major, a minor, or a degree. Successful completion of the Honors requirements is noted on the student's permanent transcript. No student may graduate from the Honors Program unless all Honors requirements are completed and unless the student's cumulative grade point average at graduation is at least 3.25.

Honors scholars apply for graduation in the same manner as other students at the University but on forms especially prepared for the Honors Program. Honors Program Graduation forms may be secured at the Records Office.

As in all programs at Bemidji State University, it is the student who is ultimately responsible for meeting requirements for graduation. The Honors Council will keep Honors students informed of program regulations and assist the student in whatever way it can.

Honors graduates are given special recognition at commencement and wear the Honors hood with their academic robes.
