Hicks Honors College Program Requirements
Beginning Fall 2019 the Hicks Honors College created a customized program for students to complete. Be all you can be with the Hicks Honors College. As an honors student, you can tailor the program to be as beneficial to your needs and interests as possible. It's basically getting rewarded for doing the things you most want to do anyway! You can find more information about the program on the UNF catalog.
To graduate with University Honors, students must:
Complete the Honors Core curriculum
- cool classes that fulfill General Education at the same time that they engage you in unique, real-world topics and challenge you to develop exceptional skills.
Shape your own Honors academic program
. After your first year, take the Honors pre-capstone Symposium and determine what academic path you'll take for your enrichment. There are tremendous opportunities: do Honors in the Major, become a Hicks Research Fellow, study abroad for a semester or more (with Hicks funding!), do a minor in an area that will complement your major, etc. All paths that will add value to your degree.
Show your leadership
by taking on a special role and by becoming actively involved in honors activities, UNF, or community organizations.
The Capstone is a pivotal experience during which students move from education to professional practice. In other words, a Capstone serves as a transition from college to a career, a professional program, or a graduate school. Students must complete an Honors Capstone topic/project of their choice and develop an e-portfolio to put your capstone project in and showcase your best self.
To remain in the Hicks Honors College, students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA and a 3.2 UNF GPA. Students below a 3.0 cumulative GPA and/or a 3.2 UNF GPA will be dropped from the college and may apply for reinstatement upon reaching the requirements. Students between a 2.75 and 3.19 are considered to be in Honors probationary status.
