Honors Program - Seminar Program
The Honors Seminar Program, founded in 1984, brings together students and academic speakers (scholars, leaders, or artists) in small group discussion sessions to examine various issues and ideas. Students also complete the Honors Core Curriculum (see link for more detailed information). Honors Seminar students may participate in a student organization featuring academic, social, and service activities - the Society for Honors Seminar Students. Students are selected primarily during their senior year in high school, although students transferring to UTM are also considered. Students selected for the Honors Seminar Program receive a Chancellor's Award for four years contingent upon satisfactory academic performance and completion of Honors Program requirements. Students who receive the Dean's Scholarship may also participate in Honors Seminar if they so desire. Approximately 250 students are presently active in the program.

Scholarships & Entrance Requirements
The Dean's Scholarship is not an Honors scholarship, but its recipients have the option of participating in the Honors Seminar Program. The Dean's Scholarship is awarded to students with an ACT composite score of 25-27 and GPA of 3.5 or higher. Dean's Scholarship recipients are awarded a scholarship package of $1500 per year for four years. To maintain scholarship eligibility, the student must maintain a 3.0 GPA at the end of every academic year.
Dean's Scholarship recipients who choose to participate in the Honors Seminar Program will complete the same academic requirements as Chancellor's Award recipients and be allowed to participate in all Honors-specific courses and functions.
