Eligibility Requirements

In order for your application to be considered, you must have:

  • a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5
  • a history of strong performance in major and prerequisite coursework
  • a planned graduation date of spring 2018 or later (for students admitted fall 2016)*

*Students planning to graduate before spring 2018 should call to schedule an appointment with the Associate Director to discuss whether or not graduation with Latin Honors is a viable option. Please note: a minimum of 60 UMTC residency credits are required to graduate with Latin Honors.
