AU Honors requires Honors students to maintain Good Standing. These regulations are intended to keep Honors students on track toward the Honors graduation requirements. There is a built-in probationary period to allow for students to recover from a challenging semester.

Grades are reviewed at the end of each semester. Students will be notified by Honors if there is a change to their status. It is important for students to monitor their own progress and contact Honors with any questions or concerns.

Note: Good Standing regulations apply to students who enter AU Honors in Fall 2017 and onward. Students who entered Honors in 2014-2016 are exempt from the Good Standing, Probation, and Dismissal regulations.

Course registration times are assigned based on the number of credits students have completed. Honors students have priority registration. For Honors students, 15 "ghost" credits are added to the number of credits they've already completed. This helps students register as if they have completed an extra semester of credits.
