Good Standing

(effective fall 2008)

Minimum Standards
In order to remain in the All-College Honors Program, students must complete all required coursework, including the senior thesis. Students are expected to earn at least a solid "B" in each Honors course.

Beginning with the class of 2011, Honors students must also graduate with an overall GPA of 3.25 in all courses at Canisius.

Dismissal
Honors students who receive three grades of "B-" or lower, two grades in the "C" range, or one "D" or "F"/"FX" in Honors courses will be dismissed from the Honors Program. Students whose academic work in Honors courses or in non-Honors courses is found to be plagiarized will also be dismissed from the Honors Program. Any senior whose Honors thesis receives a "D" or an "F" will be ineligible to graduate with Honors.

Appeal
Students who are dismissed from the Honors Program may petition the Honors Committee, which considers all such appeals. This committee is composed of the Honors director, several faculty members, and an Honors student chosen by the Honors student body. Students who have been dismissed from the Honors Program may petition the Honors Committee only once.
