Accounting Honors Program

General Guidelines

 

We encourage all accounting students to learn more about the Commonwealth Honors College (www.honors.umass.edu).  Requirements for graduating with honors reflect Commonwealth Honors College's commitment to community, academic excellence, and a breadth of knowledge beyond any single discipline.

Students who complete the full curriculum of Commonwealth Honors College (CHC) - (comprised of General Studies and Advanced Scholarship components) -- are eligible for graduation with one of the College's honors credentials on their diplomas. Partial-curriculum credentials are also possible.  Please see the CHC site for a full discussion of the honors credentials.

Latin Honors is a separate system based on a student's percentile rank within his/her school or college. All students are eligible for Latin Honors regardless of CHC membership.
