Students must earn course points through enrolling in Honors-designated classes or contracting existing courses. Course points are determined by credit hours, up to a maximum of three points per course. Course points will only be awarded for grades of A or B; however, Honors eligibility cannot be based on grade alone. Courses must include an Honors component.
Honors students will be required to earn 18 Honors points, plus a Capstone Project to receive an Honors degree. Points are earned through a combination of courses and experiences. To graduate with an Honors degree, students must complete the degree requirements for their major, maintain a cumulative 3.2 UTA GPA, be a member of the Honors College in good standing, earn a minimum of 18 Honors points, and complete and present a Capstone Project.
Students may earn points through co-curricular experiences. Each experience may be used only one time. Students may receive points for up to two experiences in a given semester. Points for Honors College leadership involvement are available to all students, regardless of major. Students must submit their proposed experience points through a verification form by the deadline for the semester in which they participate in the experience.
College Capstone Statement
Overview of Honors Degrees
The CAPPA Honors Capstone Project can be within the Creative, Research, or International categories. Courses taken for Honors course points may not be used for the Capstone Project. In addition to the Honors College requirements, the CAPPA Honors Capstone Project must meet the following:
The project must be a result of the Honors student’s individual endeavor. No team projects are acceptable, due to the difficulty of producing a deliverable that clearly demonstrates individual achievement.
The student must submit a proposal for a Capstone Project to the associate dean for faculty and student affairs no later than six months before the student’s anticipated graduation.
The Capstone Project needs to occur during an undergraduate student’s final year of study.
Creative: Creation of original creative work/activity and/or original interpretation.
Research: Traditional Honors thesis; research conducted under the mentorship of a faculty mentor.
International: Project developed through study abroad or service learning abroad.
