Honors Spring 2020 Policy Updates

In light of the challenges and changes to the spring 2020 semester, Honors has amended our academic policies:

Grade Point Averages (policy update due to COVID-19):
The Honors Program will not evaluate student GPAs at the end of the Spring 2020 semester.  All current students can remain in the Honors Program regardless of their cumulative GPA at the conclusion of this semester.  Student GPAs will next be evaluated at the conclusion of the Spring 2021 semester.

Students still need a 3.0 minimum cumulative GPA to take honors courses in the Fall 2020 term.

The overall GPA required to earn an Honors Degree is still a minimum of 3.400 or higher.

Grading (policy update due to COVID-19):
Honors courses taken High Pass or Mid Pass may be used to fulfill an Honors requirement toward the General Honors Award or Honors Degree. For full details about changes to UD’s academic regulations, visit the UD coronavirus website.
