Honors Project Contracts
Honors Project Contracts will only be offered to students who entered the Honors College prior to Summer 2022.
All other students are required to take Honors College courses moving forward. Information regarding Honors College Projects can be found within the Honors College Canvas module.
The Honors College Point System is designed to encourage active participation in the Honors community, in the Palm Beach State community, and in the local, national, and international communities to which we belong. Students are expected to earn a minimum number of points, as described in the Point System document below. Points exceeding the max of a total of 100 will not be accepted (except Honors Activities points). In addition, Honors Points may also provide a quantitative basis for scholarship determinations, program awards, and other merit-based benefits.
- Points summary updates will be issued at the end of each month by email request only to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will no longer send notification after each individual submission of activity
- Honors College students graduating must submit all points one month prior to the graduation ceremony to be noted in the graduation program.
Request for Letter of Recommendation
Honors students needing a recommendation letter from the Dr. Floyd F. Koch Honors College will need to submit the form three weeks prior.
Honors College Merit Award: A $500 stipend may be awarded to Honors College participants who have completed at least two honors courses and at least 12 credit hours and a 3.5 GPA in Palm Beach State courses and seek the Honors Gold track.
