Moreau Honors Program students ordinarily must complete at least seventeen honors credits before graduation. Six credits are taken in the first semester of the first year. Honor students must enroll in at least three courses for honors credit after the first semester at Stonehill. In addition, all honors students will complete the Honors Seminars in their first and senior years (HON100 and HON400).
The honors grade point average (GPA) is determined prior to graduation, using only the four highest honors grades, dropping the lowest grade (of the fifth course).
Honors students must have a 3.5 cumulative GPA and a 3.4 in honors courses.
