The Honors Program is under review, and these terms may be modified for the 2012-13 Academic Year.


In 1957 the faculty of the University of Miami established the General Honors Program to provide an academically challenging course of study for outstanding students. The program was later expanded by the addition of departmental honors. Students who satisfactorily complete the requirements for general and/or departmental honors are graduated with General Honors and/or Departmental Honors; the award is noted on the graduates diploma and official transcript.
