Waiver of the 90 Semester Hour Policy
Undergraduate Honors Student
An EIU honors student who has less
than 90 semester hours of completed course work at the time he or she
wishes to register may apply to waive the 90-semester hour policy.
Waiver of the policy will allow the honors student to enroll for the
desired graduate level courses. In order to be eligible for this waiver
option, the student must verify his or her status as an honors student.
In addition, the student must provide evidence that he or she is
currently enrolled in a sufficient number of semester hours to meet the
90-semester hour regulation at the conclusion of the current term. The
student must meet the 2.75 GPA criteria as this policy may not be
waived or appealed. If the waiver is approved, but the honors student
fails to complete a sufficient number of semester hours in the current
term to meet the 90 semester hour regulation, the
Graduate School will remove the student from the approved courses after
the 10th day enrollment roster is provided.
