Students with a cumulative Mizzou GPA below 3.5 will receive a warning letter the first semester in which this occurs. Students with an cumulative Mizzou GPA below 3.5 for a second consecutive semester will no longer be members of the Honors College.

Participation Requirement

  • Students who join the Honors College as first-year students will be required to complete two honors courses per year for their first two years at Mizzou. If a student completes more than two honors courses in their first year, these cannot be rolled over to count in their second year.
  • Mizzou students who join the Honors College in their sophomore year and transfer students who are admitted with sophomore standing will be required to complete two honors courses in their first year of Honors College membership.
  • All honors credits count toward this requirement, including honors-designated courses, tutorials, and honors Learning-by-Contract.
