University Honors Scholar Distinction
Although completing the Honors Program fulfills the secondary area graduation requirements, the honors program is much more than simply a minor. It is a program of distinction. Students who complete the program earn the designation of University Honors Scholar on their diplomas and transcripts. To complete the honors program, students must complete 21 credit hours of honors coursework. Six of the 21 credit hours will be fulfilled by completing a capstone project at the end of the honors experience. The additional 15 hours are fulfilled by interdisciplinary seminar-style courses.
Students must apply to the Honors Program to be accepted. All first-year honors students must take "HNR 101: Honors First-Year Seminar." Students coming into the program as continuing NKU students or as transfer students are not required to take HNR 101.
Other courses include the 300-level honors seminars and honors sections of general education courses. Up to six hours of honors sections of general education courses may be counted toward the program.
More information is available about the honors program in the academic program opportunities section of the catalog.
