You must be enrolled as a full time undergraduate student with UAF to be part of our Honors Program family.
In order to remain in good standing with the program your GPA needs to be
- At 3.25, unless you are a Freshman (0-30 University credits) who may defer probation with a 3.0 GPA.
- All higher education credits included on your transcript WILL BE CONSIDERED in determination of Honors status.
To be implemented Fall 2013, 100 hours of service hours will be required of each student in order to graduate with Honors. The hours will be completed over the course of your entire academic career. They do not need to be completed in one semester, or even one year (unless you choose to do so as many do). If you are unsure of what constitutes service hours, please feel free to contact Honors staff. Currently, we highly recommend the students begin their Honors experience by donating their time towards 100 hours of service.
By sharing your time with UAF and Fairbanks communities, we hope to foster a sense of pride and ownership between you and your surroundings.
To make the hours an easy start for incoming freshmen, we ask each new student to donate two cans of food to the Fairbanks Food Bank during the New Student Induction Ceremony in August. This event counts as one hour of service!
Fill out the Honors Service Hours Form so we can celebrate your progress.
You must be complete a minimum of 6 Honors Credits per academic year. This includes contracted courses; hence obtaining 6 credits is fairly easy given many Honors core curricular classes.
