Suggested Schedule for Completing Honors Requirements at Miami University

Students admitted into the Miami University Honors Program from Cincinnati State will be allowed to count up to four (4) of their Honors courses from Cincinnati State’s Honors Program toward their eight (8) required Honors experiences at Miami. In order for a Cincinnati State course to be considered for Miami Honors credit, it must be a designated honors course and must be accepted as credit by Miami University’s Office of the University Registrar. The Cincinnati State honors student’s academic credentials will be verified by the Miami University Admission Office at the time of application review.

Students will work with their Honors advisor at Miami to build a strategy for completing their remaining Honors requirements, which could be achieved through a combination of Honors courses, course extensions, and/or extracurricular activities which they propose to count as Honors experiences.
