The Honors Option enables an Honors Student to convert a regular course into an Honors course when the instructor and the Honors Student agree on an additional enriching academic experience. The Honors Option may be selected to fulfill the requirements of the Track 1 Curriculum (two courses in the major) or the Track 2 requirements (up to six credits of the twelve credits in the major).

The enriched academic experience is equivalent to approximately one credit of academic work. The honors option should allow students to pursue their intellectual interests and gain more knowledge about topics related to the course while fostering one-to-one interactions among faculty and Honors students.

The Process:
1. Ask the professor if he or she will allow you to Honors Option the class.
2. Fill out the online Honors Option form here by the end of the second week of the term. The student and professor agree on the scope of the enriching educational experience and determine a plan for completion.
3. The instructor must sign the Honors Option form electronically by the end of the third week.
4. The Honors Program Director must approve it electronically.
5. Check the status of your option by logging in to the Honors Option form here
