Honors students strive for intellectual autonomy and academic excellence so that they may be prepared to contribute to the advancement of their chose professions. Typically, honors students complete 22 credits of Honors coursework, though for transfer students and students starting before Fall 2016 this may vary. To fulfill this commitment students will earn at least a ‘C’ grade in two Honors elective courses by the end of their second year, after completing HNRS 100 and COMH 121. Student who have already fulfilled their COMH requirement will simply take an additional Honors elective fitting with their academic program. We know that each student’s goals, programs and circumstances vary, and so we have the following options:
- Honors Contracts are an alternative approach to this commitment and can turn any non-honors course into an honors experience. The contracts must be approved by the Honors program and agreed to by faculty and submitted to our office by the third week of the semester, please make an appointment with the Honors Advisor to discuss this option.
- Additionally, credit bearing Study Away experiences can replace one 3-credit Honors experience. Please let our office know if you plan to study away.
- If your program requires you to take your course work at a later time, please work with the Honors Advisor to process a deferral. This is often the case for students in Education or Technology; it is simple for us to develop an individualized plan for completion.
Please know the Honors Program is flexible enough to fit each major and any individual’s educational goals if they are interested in completing with Honors. Honors should never cost you additional money by adding an unneeded course to your load, nor should it slow you down or force you to drop a minor.
Early Registration for Honors students starts at 10:30am on October 30th.
