Honors Contracts

An honors contract is a mechanism for adding an honors dimension to a course or section which is not already an honors course. The contract is an agreement between the individual student and the professor in the class for which honors credit is desired. This agreement identifies a project that the student will complete under the faculty member's supervision. Although the honors contract does not affect the student's grade in the course, in order to receive honors credit for the course the student must earn a grade of "A" or "B" in the course in addition to completing the contract project in a satisfactory manner. Up to 9 hours of honors contract credit may be used to fulfill the requirements for the General Honors Award (up to 12 hours, if necessary, with permission of the Honors College Director). Honors contracts are frequently used to meet a portion of the Departmental or College Honors Award requirements.

Honors contract forms are available in The Honors College office. Contracts must be filed with The Honors College office by the end of the third week of the semester.
