Revelle Freshman Honors Program

Office of the Provost, Revelle College

Particularly well-prepared students are invited to join a freshman honors program, which includes weekly participation in small faculty seminars (Revelle 20). Acceptance into the Honors Program at admission is automatic for Regents Scholars. New freshmen entering with a high school GPA of 3.8 or higher and reading, writing, and math SAT scores of 700 or higher will be invited to enroll. Admission to the program winter and spring quarter is offered to those freshmen who achieve a 3.7 GPA in at least twelve graded units taken at UC San Diego during the previous quarter. Outstanding students are individually advised to participate in small honors classes in chemistry, mathematics, physics, and social science.

An honors reception and awards ceremony is held in spring quarter for the top two hundred Revelle students (from all class levels).

Revelle Provost Honors

Students who achieve 3.5 GPA or higher in at least twelve graded units, 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, a special recognition certificate is mailed to the student's permanent address. Energized by Revelle College’s rigorous general-education curriculum, over 750 students achieved provost honors in 2014–15 (three-quarters of whom attained a 3.5 or greater GPA and at least twelve graded units each quarter).

In addition to the provost honors program, Revelle College sponsors an annual student and faculty honors event to recognize the top 200 Revelle College students.
