Honors in the Major
Each school offers qualified students the opportunity to participate in an honors program within the school's discipline. Each program may provide two levels of recognition, Honors and Distinction. All students must have completed a minimum of 30 graded semester credit hours to qualify for major honors. The requirements for major honor's recognition vary across schools. Students should review the descriptions within the school section of the catalog. For additional information, see catalog.utdallas.edu/2016/undergraduate/policies/graduation#honors.
