College Procedures

Academic Warning

Failure to attain a GPA of at least 3.40 in one full-time semester places a student in warning status for the following semester and removes them from good academic standing in the College. Students on Academic Warning will continue to receive honors scholarships but will not be eligible for grants.

Change of Campus

Schreyer Scholars may start at any of Penn State’s undergraduate campuses but must complete their junior and senior years at Abington, Altoona, Behrend, Berks, Brandywine, Harrisburg, or University Park. Current Penn State students may be admitted into the Schreyer Honors College through the current student admission process.

Honors Courses

First-year and sophomore students should expect to fulfill most or all of their honors requirements via honors courses, with limited exceptions by major and campus. A grade of C or higher is required for an honors course to meet honors credit requirements. With approval of the instructor and their honors adviser, students may take honors option courses that are typically not honors courses. A list of honors courses can be found via LionPATH.
