Current Students: How to Apply
Students with the following GPAs are encouraged to apply for the Honors Program:
Freshmen: 3.3 or above
Sophomores: 3.4 or above
Juniors: 3.5 or above
The reasoning behind the sliding scale GPAs for current students is that those who are closer to graduation will have less opportunity, statistically, to increase their GPAs to the 3.5 requirement for the honors degree. In addition, students closer to graduation will have less opportunity to fit in the 21 honors credits necessary for the honors degree. Any interested student close to the GPA parameters should make an appointment with the Honors Director to tailor a plan. Students entering later than freshman year have had great success in the program.
"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
