Neeley Fellows and the John V. Roach Honors College
Neeley Fellows has a close relationship with the John V. Roach Honors College, a community of curious, ambitious students who seek to enhance their TCU education through high-impact learning experiences beyond their majors. The unique learning opportunities students receive through the John V. Roach Honors College complements the curricular and co-curricular mission of Neeley Fellows. We therefore strongly encourage (though we do not require) all current and prospective Neeley Fellows to seek admission to the John V. Roach Honors College and to complete the Lower- and Upper-Division Honors College requirements to graduate as an honors Laureate.
Neeley Fellows who are not yet members of the Honors College may apply for admission in the fall. Application information and key dates will be communicated via the Honors College website.
Many Honors College requirements can be satisfied through the Neeley Fellows curriculum.
Lower-Division Honors Requirements
To complete the Lower-Division Honors, students need to fulfill five requirements: three Honors electives and two Honors Cultural Visions courses (or approved study abroad programs). Sophomore Neeley Fellows courses in Fundamentals of Accounting, Legal Environment of Business, Financial Management, and Marketing Management count as Honors Electives. The Cultural Visions requirements can be satisfied by taking designated Honors Cultural Visions courses outside the Neeley School, a semester of TCU study abroad, or TCU approved study abroad courses for which students earn at least three credit hours.
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 seminars in which junior and senior Honors students from various majors explore important, big-picture questions). You should discuss these options with your Honors College academic advisor and with Dean Muller as part of your academic advising in Neeley Fellows.
