Student Steps to Complete an Honors Project
Contact the instructor to secure approval for the project and to discuss the requirements, including objectives and a timeline for completing the project. Keep in mind that in-course honors projects should be a collaborative activity and the instructor may not agree to supervise your project or may suggest changes or alternative projects. If the instructor does not wish to supervise your project, you are responsible for finding another course and instructor who will supervise a project for honors credit. Make sure to let instructors know that the project is an opportunity for the student to do more work, not the instructor (unless the instructor would like to).
Your instructor will be contacted to confirm the information submitted on your application.
At the end of the semester, the Honors College will seek verification from your instructor regarding whether your project has been satisfactorily completed and the course will be designated as an honors course on the student’s official transcript by the addition of an HON suffix to the course number.
