Honors Housing provides a 24-hour quiet environment for selected students. Current Juniors who have at least a 3.25 overall GPA, current Sophomores who have at least a 3.5 overall GPA, and current First-Year students who have at least a 3.5 overall GPA are given highest consideration for Honors Theme Housing. Applicants may not be under any current disciplinary sanctions in order to qualify for this housing. Students will be selected to live in one of the Honors Houses by class standing, GPA, application, and recommendation. If there are a large number of applicants, lottery numbers may be used to determine selection.
