Honors Requirements: Freshmen

Students in the University Honors Program should consult regularly with the director.


  • Submit all AP scores to Admissions & Records (LH-144)
    • If you took AP English or AP math, you can swap out those courses once AP credit is recognized in your Titan Degree Audit (TDA) . Note: CSUF does NOT have honors courses in English or math.
  • Take Honors 101A (Satisfies GE requirement A.3)
    • Contact Pérez if you have taken a Critical Thinking course at a community college; all other Honors students will take Honors 101A in the first semester.


Honors Colloquiums

  • Take Honors 100; can be taken Spring of Freshman year or Fall of Sophomore year

Other Reminders 

  • First year students should have a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA by the end of the academic year
  • You do NOT need to take an Honors course every semester as long as you are progressing towards completing 24 units of Honors courses by the time you graduate.
