Honors Contract Courses

An honors contract is an agreement between an undergraduate student and a faculty instructor that allows the student to turn a standard course into an honors course. Submitting an honors contract form and Registrar Form 23 with appropriate authority signatures represents a commitment by both the student and the faculty instructor.

In general, honors contracts allow the student to go beyond the material of the regular course and to produce more sophisticated work. A student may, for example, delve more deeply into methodology, structure, theory, or application; perform additional or alternative research; develop a service project; or present findings in some format.

Honors Contracts are due by the second Friday of the semester. Late submissions will not be accepted.
