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. 

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 Registrar's H (Honors) grade mode deadline. Please see the Registrar's Spring 2024 Drop/Add Dates here: DROP / ADD DATES

The deadline to add H Grade mode for full-semester courses is Monday, January 22. Late submissions will not be accepted

These are the instructions to contract in the College of Pharmacy, Purdue Polytechnic Institute, and College of Veterinary Medicine. Honors Contracting Form, Procedure and FAQs

If you are contracting a course in any other disciplinary college, please use the normal contracting form. All students MUST request an Honors (H) Grade Mode Change using the Scheduling Assistant in myPurdue.
