Scholars students have the opportunity to earn a citation on their transcript, a formal academic distinction that indicates achievement above and beyond completing degree and major requirements. These citation requirements are rooted in our values, emphasizing not simply interdisciplinary learning but also the importance of community. To earn a Scholars citation, therefore, students must:
- Complete all courses in their program curriculum by the end of the fourth semester;
- Earn a minimum GPA of 3.0 in their program curriculum, with no mark of XF in any course at the end of the curriculum;
- Demonstrate evidence of active participation in and contribution to their program community; and
- Refrain from behavior destructive to that community.
Please consult your program director with any questions.
