What is an Honors Option?
A student must be accepted into the Honors Program to be eligible for an Honors Option.
The main purpose of an Honors Option is to increase the scope and depth of learning in a non-Honors course and to enrich the student's experience. You can receive Honors credit in non-Honors courses by going beyond the regular class requirements.
- The student should meet with the instructor early in the semester to ensure enough time to complete the Honors Option project. The student and the instructor should use a creative approach to devise a unique learning experience. The Honors Option must exhibit higher level thinking skills, for example; analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating.
- The student and the instructor need to complete an Honors Option Contract Form (pdf) which is also available in the Honors Office.
- Upon successful completion of the Honors Option, the instructor must complete and submit an Honors Option Verification Form.
- Upon successful completion of the Honors Option, a "+" will be posted on the transcript.
