Neeley Fellows fits into any of the degree plans offered in the Neeley School of Business. We also try to accommodate those students who wish to pursue an additional degree outside of Neeley. All students should consult their academic advisor in Neeley Student Success Services to determine specific course sequencing.

Neeley Fellows take the same courses as other Neeley Students (with the exception of Data Analytics) but different teaching philosophies are used, emphasis is more in-depth and there is a focus on experiential learning.  Neeley Fellows take most core classes with their cohort from sophomore to senior year.

Program Sequence

Neeley Fellows complete a challenging, curricular and co-curricular program over their Sophomore, Junior and Senior years. Neeley Fellows have the option to do Departmental or University Honors. Neeley Fellows are strongly encouraged to study abroad. Students in the program have an opportunity to take a semester abroad during the spring of their Junior year. Alternatively, they have an opportunity to travel internationally with the program and study abroad during the summer mini term as part of the Responsible Global Business Perspectives course taken during the last 8 weeks of the spring semester of Junior year. The Responsible Global Business Perspectives course is not a required part of the Neeley Fellows curriculum to allow for our students that study abroad, but is expected for those students who are not doing a semester abroad.

Neeley Fellows and the John V. Roach Honors College

Meg Thompson

All Neeley Fellows will apply to the John V. Roach Honors College, a community of academic excellence where highly motivated students explore the complexities of knowledge through innovative courses and high-impact learning experiences such as study abroad, interdisciplinary inquiry, and undergraduate research.

Neeley Fellows who complete all Lower- and Upper-Division Honors College requirements graduate with the distinction of Honors Laureate along with their Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the Neeley School of Business. 

Lower-Division Honors Requirements 

Sophomore courses in Fundamentals of Accounting, Legal & Social Environment of Business, Financial Management and Marketing Management count toward the three Honors Electives needed to satisfy Lower-Division Honors. Responsible Global Business Perspectives with study abroad currently satisfies one of two required Honors Cultural Visions.

To satisfy the remaining Lower-Division Honors requirements for the Honors College, students must satisfy an additional Cultural Visions requirement by completing one of the following:

  • Semester of TCU study abroad
  • TCU approved summer study abroad for which students earn at least 3 credit hours 
  • Any course listed in TCU Class Search with the Honors: Cultural Visions Classes attribute

Students who complete Lower-Division Honors earn the distinction of Kathryne McDorman Honors Scholar and are invited to attend a celebratory dinner during the fall semester following completion of their Lower-Division requirements.

Upper-Division Honors Requirements

To earn Upper-Division Honors, students must complete either Departmental Honors (a research project conducted over two semesters under the supervision of a faculty mentor) or University Honors (three Honors colloquia, small discussion-intensive seminars that explore topics relevant and accessible to students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds).

Other TCU Honors Requirements

Honors College students completing the Neeley Fellows Program are bound by the GPA and other requirements of the John V. Roach Honors College in order to graduate as Honors Laureates.
