Honors Program

Current Students: How to Apply

Students with the following GPAs are encouraged to apply for the Honors Program:

  • Freshmen: 3.3 or above
  • Sophomores: 3.4 or above
  • Juniors: 3.5 or above

The reasoning behind the sliding scale GPAs for current students is that those who are closer to graduation will have less opportunity, statistically, to increase their GPAs to the 3.5 requirement for the honors degree. In addition, students closer to graduation will have less opportunity to fit in the 21 honors credits necessary for the honors degree. Any interested student close to the GPA parameters should make an appointment with the Honors Director to tailor a plan. Students entering later than freshman year have had great success in the program.

Note: please allow up to 4 weeks for a decision from the Honors Council. If you would like an expedited review, please petition the Honors Director.

"I love the fast pace environment, the people in the profession, and the adrenaline rush of running into a burning building or saving someone’s life," she says.

Rondeau chose Lake Superior State University because it offers the first accredited four-year fire science degree in the United States. She also jumped at the challenge of LSSU's Honors program, which requires her to complete 21 Honors credits, including 10 credits for an Honors seminar/thesis project.
