Scholars Program (SCHOL)
Professor: Chandler (Director)
The Lycoming College Scholars Program is a special program designed to meet the needs and aspirations of highly motivated students of superior intellectual ability. Lycoming Scholars satisfy the College’s Distribution Requirements with more challenging courses than students not in the Lycoming Scholars Program are required to complete. (Substitutions to the Distribution Requirements for Lycoming Scholars can be made only by successful application to the Committee on Academic Standards with a supporting signature by the Lycoming Scholars Council Director.) Lycoming Scholars also participate in special interdisciplinary seminars and in an independent study culminating in a senior presentation. The Lycoming Scholars Seminar is a 1 credit course and does not result in overload charges for full-time students.
