3.17 - OUHSC Honors Program

The OUHSC Honors Program offers academically superior undergraduate students the opportunity to enroll in specially-designed courses that lead to a degree with Honors, High Honors, or Highest Honors.

The aim of this program is to challenge academically superior students and enable them to attain deeper understanding of their disciplines and a greater degree of commitment to their intellectual goals.  In order to graduate with a degree with Honors, students must satisfy the requirements of both the Honors College on the OU Norman campus and the OUHSC department in which they are majoring. The educational opportunities include special sections, independent study and research, and interdisciplinary study.

Students should contact the OUHSC department in which they are enrolled and the OU Norman Honors College for program requirements.  Some intercampus enrollment may be required to satisfy the requirements of the Honors College.

Students who successfully complete all requirements of the Honors Program and attain an overall grade point average of at least 3.80 will graduate with summ cum laude; those with overall grade point averages of 3.60 to 3.79, will graduate with magna cum laude; and those with overall grade point averages of 3.40 to 3.59, will graduate with cum laude.
