The 3-credit hour research project class is not assigned a letter grade but instead is taken for "credit only." It does not count toward the 120-credit hours required for graduation. Only projects that are deemed to be of exceptional quality will receive credit and result in the Honors designation. Students who begin a research project but do not complete it will be retroactively withdrawn from the research course.

Business Honors Societies

Students may be nominated for or elected into an honor society based on specific criteria. Contact the listed department for additional information.
