The Honors Program at Saint Paul College offers enhanced learning opportunities and activities to students who demonstrate academic excellence and a high level of interest and initiative.

Honors Pr​ogram Eligibility

To be eligible to enroll in honors sections, students must show a demonst​rated pattern of academic excellence through one of the following:

  • completion of at least 12 college-level credits with a Grade Point Average of 3.5 or higher
  • entering high school students with a Grade Point Average of 3.​5 or higher​​
Benefits of Taking Honors Courses
  • Increased opportunities for intellectual challenge and growth
  • Opportunity to work with other highly motivated students in small classroom settings (honors sections have smaller class sizes).
  • Designation of “honors” after each honors section on college transcript indicates academic rigor to potential employers, transfer institutions, and/or scholarship committees
Honors Scholars at Saint Paul College

Students who complete 4 courses or 12 credits of honors coursework over their careers at Saint Paul College become Honors Scholars. The “Honors Scholar” designation is then added to the student’s Saint Paul College transcript to be noted by potential employers, transfer institutions, and/or scholarship committees. Honors Scholars also receive well-deserved recognition at our graduation ceremony.

Honors sections are scheduled three semesters in advance to allow students to plan their coursework so they can work toward becoming Honors Scholars as they complete their degree or program requirements. There is no need for honors students to take additional coursework because honors sections fulfill program and degree requirements in the same way traditional sections do.
