Honors Contract


The submission period for FALL 2019 Honors Contracts has CLOSED.  Plan ahead for your Spring 2020 Honors contracts by contacting your prospective professors before you enroll, to ensure that they offer contracts! 

STEP 1: Select a course that qualifies to be converted into an Honors course.  Courses must meet ALL of the following requirements to be eligible for conversion:

  • The course must be 16-weeks long (shorter courses, such as 4-week and 8-week courses do not qualify for Honors contracts).
  • The course must be taught in-person (online courses and hybrid courses do not qualify for Honors contracts).
  • The course must be transfer level (“transfer level” courses qualify towards transferring to a university. Remedial courses do not qualify as “transfer level.”

STEP 2: Ask your professor!  For the course(s) you want to convert to Honors, discuss your interest in establishing an honors contract with your professor either before or during the first week of classes. Be prepared to explain why you are interested in pursuing additional study in this course.  If your professor is willing to create a contract with you, schedule an appointment with them to create the Honors contract.

STEP 3: Create an honors contract in collaboration with your professor that includes:

  • Between 3 - 5 additional Honors Assignments.
  • Honors assignments that combine to equal between 25-33% of your overall grade in the course.

STEP 4:  Submit your Honors contract online using the following link (you do NOT need to submit a paper contract—we have gone 100% digital this year!):


STEP 5: Give yourself a pat on the back; you are all set!  Make sure to come to the Honors office for resources, support, study area, free printing, and much more.
