Majors who are candidates for special honors in Czech should apply to the honors adviser for admission to the honors program no later than two semesters before graduation. A University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average in Czech of at least 3.50 are required for admission. The requirements for graduation with special honors are (1) Czech 679H, Honors Tutorial Course, with a grade of at least B in each half, and completion of a paper judged "Acceptable for Honors in Czech"; (2) a University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average in Czech of at least 3.50; and (3) completion at the University of at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree.
