Approval for graduation with honors is granted to any student who meets the following requirements:
(1) Maintains at least a 4.00 grade point average (GPA) in all upper-division department course work and at least a 3.50 GPA overall.
(2) Maintains at least a 3.75 GPA in all upper-division department course work and at least a 3.50 GPA overall and submits an honors thesis written under the guidance of a Romance languages faculty thesis adviser. The thesis adviser determines whether the thesis is acceptable and may require the student to register for up to 6 pass/no pass (P/N) credits in Thesis (FR, ITAL, SPAN 403).
*NOTE: If a student wishes to apply for honors by submitting an honors thesis, the application for graduation with honors must be submitted by the end of the term that immediately preccedes the term of graduation. (If a student is planning on graduating in the spring term, they must apply for graduation through their departmental adviser during the winter term).
Transfer credits and overseas work used to fulfill major graduation requirements are typically included in determining the major GPA.
