Advanced Honors Seminars

After successfully completing Honors Mindset Seminar, Honors students may choose to take an Advanced Honors Seminar as an Honors Learning Experience. Each Honors Seminar is 1 credit hour, results in a letter grade, and counts as an Honors Learning Experience.

Students should not repeat a seminar. Though the topic may have changed, the repeat policy will be in place for a second enrollment; the credit and grade earned during the first enrollment will be replaced by the second enrollment. If there is a situation that may necessitate repeating a seminar, please be in touch with Christie Martin.

Presidential Scholars who started in Fall 2019 or earlier are required to take three Advanced Honors Seminars and are given priority access to these classes during the first week of registration.
