VERMILLION, S.D. -- The University of South Dakota graduated 49 students in Spring 2016 who met the requirements for the honors program, including two who were named honors thesis scholars.
The USD Honors Program is made up of 350 students who hold more than 25 percent of all campus leadership positions, study abroad at a higher-than-average rate and compete successfully for nationally competitive scholarships and graduate school placements. Honors classes tend to be smaller than average and are taught by some of the most distinguished faculty members on campus.
The program recommends applicants have an ACT score of 27 or higher (or an SAT score of 1220 or higher) and a high school cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher, but students who are close to those standards should still apply.
