Student Guide for Honors Contracts


Honors Contracts allow students to make individualized arrangements with instructors in order to earn Honors credit in non-honors courses. Contracts are intended to provide students with a more engaging experience that allows them to work closely with the instructor and explore course material in a personally meaningful way. The development of an Honors Contract should be a collaborative effort between the student and instructor, but all contract proposals must be submitted to the Honors College for review and approval. Restrictions on the types of courses that can be contracted, instructors who are eligible to supervise Honors Contracts, and the total number of units that can be completed via Honors Contract may impact your ability to contract a particular course. Refer to our detailed Honors Contract Policies and review the information below before approaching an instructor about contract options.

Contract Due Dates

Honors Contract due dates are dependent on the length of the class. All information, including your professor’s approval, is due by the appropriate submission deadline. Since all information is due by the submission deadline it is advised that students do not wait to start on their Honors Contract until the last minute.

Honors Contract Submission Deadlines for Fall 2020:

Full Semester Friday, September 18th
Seven Week – First Friday, September 11th
Seven Week – Second Friday, October 30th
