Revelle First-year Student Honors Program

Office of the Provost, Revelle College

Particularly well-prepared students coming to UC San Diego’s Revelle College from high schools (first-year students) are invited to join the Revelle College Honors Program, which includes weekly participation in a small faculty seminar (REV 20). In the fall quarter, eligible first-year students will be invited to enroll. Enrollment criteria include a high school GPA of 3.8 and above and high achievement in a combination AP or honors or college-level courses or IB HL.

In additionfirst-year Regents Scholars, Jacobs Scholars, Chancellor’s Scholars, and Chancellor’s Associates Scholars are eligible for enrollment.

Invitation to the program’s winter and spring quarter seminar is offered to first-year students who achieve a 3.7 GPA in at least twelve graded units per quarter, taken at UC San Diego during the previous quarter(s).

Quarterly provost honors, honors at graduation, departmental honors, and Phi Beta Kappa honors are awarded to students at all class levels. An honors recognition event is held in spring quarter for the top two hundred Revelle students from all class levels. For additional information, see “Revelle Honors Programs” and “Honors.”

Revelle Provost Honors

Students who achieve 3.5 GPA or higher in at least twelve graded units per quarter, with no grade of D, F, or NP recorded for the quarter, receive provost honors for the quarter and this achievement is posted on student transcripts.

Upon achieving provost honors for all three quarters in the same academic year (F,W,S), a special recognition certificate is mailed to the student’s permanent domestic address in late summer. Energized by Revelle College’s rigorous general-education curriculum, close to 1,000 students achieve provost honors each year.
