For a fuller description, see Academic Honors in the Academic Services section in this catalog. Charles W. Bolen Senior Professionals Honors Student Award: Honors students men- tored by Senior Professionals are eligible to apply for the $1,000 Charles W. Bolen Scholarship. Scholarships are awarded each spring based on applicants’ involvement with the Senior Professionals Program, academic accomplishments, and campus and community involvement. UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES WITH HONORS Degrees with Distinction: Eligible students may graduate from Illinois State with traditional, Latin-named degrees with distinction: cum laude; magna cum laude; or summa cum laude. Many Honors students graduate with these distinctions. These designations are indicated both on a stu- dent’s diploma and transcript.

Honors students receiving undergraduate degrees may receive one or more Honors designa- tions, available to students with various types of commitment to academic work beyond the basic catalog requirements. The following designations are recorded permanently on student transcripts, and some of them are noted on diplomas.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
