FOR STUDENTS WHO ENTERED SKIDMORE PRIOR TO 2017:



Departmental honors are awarded to a senior major who has maintained the required college and department averages and has completed a research project in BI 371 A-C, BI 375C or BI 385. Other factors, such as academic integrity, will bear on the decision to award honors.



FOR STUDENTS WHO ENTERED SKIDMORE 2017 AND BEYOND:



To be eligible for honors in Biology, a student must meet the requisite grade-point average* and complete BI 376 - Senior Thesis in Biology with a grade of A- or higher. Students must also complete an honors application by the withdrawal deadline of the spring semester of the senior year. Within this application, students must describe their research experiences and explain why these experiences should qualify them for honors in Biology.



*Note: To be considered for honors, the college requires a GPA of 3. 500 or higher for work in the major, and a GPA of 3. 000 or higher based on all work taken at Skidmore.
