How to Add Honors Designations to Appropriate Sections

Be sure to coordinate with instructors and academic leadership in your department so that the honors designations are appropriately assigned to (or removed) from classes. These values term roll, so be sure to review (and update, as needed) honors designations that rolled forward from the previous like term. As a reminder, a class association can only be changed if the Term Update Switch is ‘On’ and the class has zero enrollment.
