Special permission is not required for an existing course to be designated as an Honors course when the Schedule of Courses is prepared. The Honors designation is suitable only for undergraduate courses that meet the needs of the most able and motivated students. These needs are typically met in courses that have restricted enrollments, that involve students in writing and discussion, or that offer a more accelerated or deeper treatment of the subject than the standard curriculum. If a course will always be offered as an Honors course, departments should consider assigning an Honors number, signified by the middle digit of "8".
Guidance on use of the "Honors" designation for courses.
Departments that wish to offer new Honors courses should ask the Director of the Honors Program about prevailing College standards in Honors courses.
