The Schreyer Scholars and Campus Honors Program
The Penn State Worthington Scranton Campus Honors Program is a certificate-granting program. Certificates are awarded annually at the Commonwealth campuses. If students qualify, they may also pursue a special honors degree as Schreyer Scholars.
The program provides a means for motivated students to enrich their general education and to deepen their specialized preparation for graduate study or a profession. Students can take advantage of the following opportunities:
- Special honors courses with limited enrollment allow for active interchange between faculty and students and provide more in-depth involvement with subject matter.
- Honors options makes it possible for a student to develop an honors project in any University course.
- Independent honors research allows students to generate their own study plan for a course.
In addition, the program sponsors a number of extracurricular honors events that add depth to the college experience. In the past, students have traveled to Canada, Washington D.C. and Boston. They have had opportunities to have dinner and meet individually with renowned campus guests such as Judy Mann, Robert Ressler, Jesse Jackson, Jr. and Adrian Cronauer of Good Morning Vietnam fame. They have also given their time and talents to service in the community.
Consideration for admission to the program includes high school grade-point average (GPA), Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores, predicated college GPA, and similar relevant information.
Members must complete a minimum number of honors courses each year.
Schreyer Scholars must maintain a GPA of 3.20, members of the campus honors program must keep a GPA of 3.33.
