Honors Program Policy Change
RE: Honors Credits and Courses Needed for Graduation (30 versus 24)
Starting in the Fall Semester of 2012, all HP students will be required to complete 24 honors credits including 3 credits of 3XX-level HP coursework. Policies related to HONR 101, HONR 498, and HONR 499 remain as before. (Two honors 3-credit courses will be offered in the Spring 2013 Semester: HONR 302 “Gender and Mad Men” and HONR 307 “Scientific Graphing and Visual Techniques).
Students who entered the HP before the Fall Semester of 2012 have the option to switch to the new 24- honors credits requirement providing they also fulfill the new 3 credits of 3XX-level HP coursework requirement. Policies related to HONR 101, HONR 498, and HONR 499 would also remain as before. If you choose to pursue this option, you must communicate your intent to the HP office before the fall of your senior year, so that we may make the necessary changes to your Program Evaluation.
