Summer Honors Contracts are now available.
Purpose: Through completion of an Honors Contract, students collaborate with an instructor to turn a non-Honors course into an Honors Learning Experience. Students can choose to extend their knowledge of a class topic, connect a class topic to their major/personal interest, or expand on a class assignment. Honors Contracts are expected to take approximately 15 hours of work, which is about one additional hour per week. Students benefit from the opportunity to customize their learning and collaborate with faculty.
Process: Honors Contracts are established at the beginning of each semester. Students should review the Honors Contract Resources provided above in order to be knowledgeable about the process.
Evidence: Students submit the final product to their instructor for evaluation. In addition, in the last week of the semester, students submit evidence of their Honors Contract to the Honors Program through an online form.
Instructors evaluate the final product and verify the successful completion of the Honors Contract. Instructors also have the opportunity to provide comments about the student's performance.
