Requirements for Upgrading a Course to Honors
Honors students are permitted to convert a maximum of two of their upper division courses into Honors level courses, provided that they observe the following guidelines:
- Use a course upgrade form to obtain permission from the instructor of the course and the Director of the Honors Program by the end of the Drop/Add period of the semester in which the course is being taken.
- Arrange a specific research project in collaboration with the instructor, which is separate from regular course requirements and which results in a substantial research essay or its equivalent in addition to regular course requirements.
- Take a final examination that is different from the regular examination which addresses the chosen area of research. Lower division GER courses may not be converted into Honors courses.
