Senior Distinctions

Students who earn a grade point average of 3.5 in major courses have the opportunity to complete a significant research project to graduate with distinction in their field of concentration. The projects are determined in consultation with the student’s faculty advisor and presented on Senior Distinction Day, which takes place in April of each year.

For students with an individualized major, in addition to earning a 3.5 average in all courses in the major program, the project may be completed as part of a capstone course or culminating experience. The project must be approved for distinction by two faculty members representing different academic disciplines within the individualized major.
