The Honors Thesis Program requires students to complete HON4380 (Senior Research), or UGRx388 (Undergraduate Research), and HON4182 (Honors Thesis).

Advanced Credit for Honors Courses

Students who enter the Honors College are eligible for advanced standing credit as indicated in the Advanced Credit Policy with one exception concerning advanced credit for ENG1302.  Advanced credit will be given for ENG 1302 if students have earned at least 28 on the English portion of the ACT or 670 on the SAT Critical Reading test, or have earned credit for ENG 1301 by taking it prior to admission to the university, or by passing the ENG 1301 CLEP test.

However, this credit will be contingent upon completion of the honors core English course, ENG 2307, with a grade of B or better.  If students are eligible for ENG1302 advanced credit and complete ENG2307 with a B or better, they will receive credit for ENG 1302 as well. Students who do not earn a B or better in ENG 2307 must enroll in ENG 1302 in a subsequent semester.

Transfer Policy

First Year Beginning students and Transfer students admitted to the Honors College will complete the Honors College Graduate curriculum on a sliding scale, based on the number of hours transferred.  Transfer students will only be admitted to the Honors College if they have been participants in and received credits from an Honors Program or Honors College at the institution they transfer from.  Current LCU students who are recommended and accepted in the Honors College will complete Honors College requirements based on the First Year Beginning column of Table 1.
