Offer Honors Options

Honors Option courses are those that are numbered 3000 or higher in which an Honors student earns Honors credit by completing an additional paper or project. The student must submit a completed application by the end of the second week of classes.

All assistant professors, associate professors, and full professors may offer Honors credit to a student in their upper-level courses. Courses that are taught by academic professionals, visiting lecturers, or instructors and are numbered 3000 and above 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.

Honors does not have any specific expectations for the additionally assigned work, as long as it goes beyond that which is otherwise listed on the course syllabus. Some professors require an additional essay or research paper; others extend the length and scope of an assignment already on the syllabus. Some professors have assigned class presentations or literature/journal reviews.

It is up to the instructor and the student to agree on what the additional assignment will be and to what extent the work will contribute to the final grade for the course (if at all).
