Advising

Advising Procedures: Freshman and Sophomore Honor students are advised by their RSP (Ratio Studiorum Program) advisors. When the students declares a major, they may choose an advisor from the honors advisor faculty. The name of the new advisor and advisee should be communicated to the Honors Director or Assistant Director using the Change of Advisor Form.

Requirements for Good Standing

Students entering the Honors Program in August 2006 or later are considered to be in good standing if:

1. The students are making acceptable progress towards fulfilling the requirements for an Honors Degree. Ordinarily, this means that Honors students should have completed at least 6 credit hours of Honors courses by the end of their freshman year, 12 by the end of their sophomore year, and 18 by the end of their junior year; and

2. The students have maintained a QPA of at least 3.3 for all courses taken at Creighton; and

3. The students have maintained a QPA of at least 3.0 for all Honors courses taken at Creighton. (This Honors-specific QPA will not be computed until a student has completed at least two Honors courses.)

Honors students that are not in good standing will be notified and will be given one semester to remedy the situation.  Failure to remedy may result in their dismissal from the Honors Program.

Limited Tuition Waiver: Honors students in good standing will not be charged tuition above and beyond the standard full-time tuition for a given semester, regardless of the number of credit hours they are taking. Their eligibility to register for more than 18 hours will still be subject to Dean's Office approval in the same way as other students'. Students should get a tuition waiver letter from Prof. Hause.
