Courses With Honors Option

Honors Option courses are those numbered 3000 or higher in which an Honors student earns Honors credit by completing an additional paper or project. All tenured and tenure-track professors may offer any 3000 or higher course for Honors credit. Tenured or tenure-track professors are assistant professors, associate professors, or professors. Upper-level courses taught by academic professionals, lecturers, or instructors may be offered for Honors credit, if the application is signed by the head of the department in which the course is taught. Students cannot earn Honors credit for courses taught by graduate assistants.

The Honors Option application consists of two parts. Please read these instructions before submitting an application.

Part I: Complete the Honors Option Application (part one), obtain permission of the instructor, and submit it to the front desk of Moore College within the first 10 days of the semester. Incomplete applications cannot be processed and will be returned to the student at the local address indicated on the application.

Part II: After you have completed the additional paper or project required for Honors credit, complete the top portion of the Honors Option Confirmation Report (Part II) and present it to your professor. After your professor evaluates your additional work and determines you have satisfied the Honors Option agreement, he/she must complete all information and sign and return Part II to the Honors Program. Honors credit cannot be posted to your record until the semester ends and your grades are posted to your permanent record.

Credit for completed Honors Options is not visible in DegreeWorks (although it will be reflected in the Honors course counter), but Honors Options completed fall 2014 or after will be visible on the transcript in Athena once we have received Part II from your instructor. Please allow up to two weeks after the semester ends for the credit to be reflected on your transcript.
