Current Students


The academic requirements of the University Scholars Program are rigorous yet flexible. Students must complete the following in order to successfully complete the program:

  • Maintain a grade point average of 3.25 for the duration of their time at NC State
  • Successfully complete 3 semesters of the Scholars Forum
  • Complete 12 hour of approved coursework with a grade of B- or better before graduation

After all three of these criteria are met, students are awarded a USP medal and receive a certificate at their departmental graduation and designation on their transcript. Follow the links in red above to learn more about each aspect of our academic requirements.
