Community Engaged Scholar

​Engaged Scholar Badge

Digital badges on your enhanced transcript signal future employers or graduate schools of accomplishments and skill sets that you have obtained throughout your time as an undergraduate. At UHD, the first badge we are offering is the Engaged Scholar Badge. The Engaged Scholar Badge will indicate that a student is a particularly skilled critical thinker and is able to problem solve in a real-world setting. Student will be able to capitalize on this badge by providing example work or experiences that support the badge.


  • Take a minimum of four A+CE courses during your first two years at UHD
  • Earn "A" or "B" grades in at least three of those A+CE courses and no lower than a "C" in the fourth A+CE course*.
  • Maintain an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher

*Example: Student takes six A+CE courses. Student makes an "A" in two courses, a "B" in one course and a "C" in three courses. This student is eligible for the Engaged Scholar Badge because they may count four A+CE courses in which only one has a "C" grade.
