Seneff Honors College Honor Code
Honors students are responsible for adhering to the Seneff Honors College Honor Code. The Seneff Honors College Honor Code outlines student expectations and procedures for sanctioning if student expectations are violated.
To remain eligible for honors, students must have a minimum overall cumulative GPA of 3.0 each term and be in good standing in accordance with the Seneff Honors College Honor Code. If your overall cumulative GPA falls below a 3.0 you are no longer eligible for Honors and will be inactivated. Should your overall cumulative GPA rise to the required level you can contact the Honors Office to be reactivated.
A student who fails to take an honors class for two consecutive sessions (not including summer term) will be inactivated. Students who have been inactivated for non-enrollment may request to be reactivated so long as they enroll in an honors course and have a minimum overall GPA of 3.0.
Honors students will be offered three levels of graduation distinction:
The term SENEFF HONORS COLLEGE SCHOLAR is reserved for those students who successfully complete the curricular requirements of one of the program tracks, who earn no less than a "C" in each honors class*, who graduate with a cumulative overall GPA of at least 3.5, and who complete three approved co-curricular activities each term of enrollment (fall and spring).
The term VALENCIA HONORS SCHOLAR is reserved for those students who successfully complete at least 18 hours of honors coursework, who earn no less than a "C" in each honors class*, who graduate with a cumulative overall GPA of at least 3.33, and who complete three approved co-curricular activities each term of enrollment (fall and spring).
Students who successfully complete at least 12 hours of honors coursework, who earn no less than a "C" in each honors class*, and who maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25 will earn an HONORS CERTIFICATE. * See college grade forgiveness policy. At the Commencement Ceremony, honors graduates walk first in the A.A. student processional and wear stoles, cords, medallions, and/or tassels depending on the program they complete.
To qualify for honors graduation, students must complete both a regular Valencia College graduation application and a Seneff Honors College graduation application by the published deadline. For more about Valencia College graduation, visit the Graduation webpage.
