Students are required to take a minimum of 24 semester hours (s.h.) in Honors courses in order to graduate. These hours must include 3 s.h. from HON 490, the Senior Seminar, and 3-4 s.h. from HON 498, the Honors Project. Differing versions of HON 490 are offered, one each semester, so that students may take more than one HON 490 course during their career. The Honors Project is an opportunity for individualized, independent learning on a topic of the student's choice. For more information on HON 498: The Honors Project, click here.

Occasionally, students will need or wish to take a non-Honors course for Honors credit. These students have the Honors Choice option in which they can contract with a professor to receive Honors credit by fulfilling agreed-upon requirements.
