Graduation with Honors in Statistics

Undergraduate Policy Revisions

  • CLAS is now requiring that all departments drop membership in UI Honors as a requirement for pursuing Honors in the Major; any student who wishes to earn both may still do so. The Honors in the Major thesis or other project will be accepted by UI Honors for the 12 s.h. of experiential learning required for graduating with UI Honors. CLAS departments may continue to set GPA expectations and other standards and requirements for Honors in the Major, with a minimum UI cumulative GPA of 3.33 suggested.

Students majoring in statistics have the opportunity to graduate with honors in the major. Departmental honors students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 3.40 in their major and a cumulative University of Iowa g.p.a. of at least 3.33. 

To graduate with honors in the statistics major, students must complete an honors project or a suitable alternative.  A Statistics student planning to graduate with honors should contact the Statistics Honors advisor, Prof. RP Russo.

In addition to honors in their majors, undergraduate students have a variety of opportunities for honors study and activities through membership in the University of Iowa Honors Program; visit Honors at Iowa to learn about the University's honors program.
