A contract for honors credit is used when a student has had difficulty obtaining honors elective credit and can only be used once in your college career. Contracts are allowed only on letter-graded, classroom-based courses. Students may contract for Honors credit only in courses taught by tenured, tenure-track, or ranked renewable term faculty. Please meet with the professor to discuss an appropriate assignment of additional work, and document it in the body of the form. You must have the professor sign it, as well as the honors coordinator or departmental chair of the department that the course is in, before turning it into the Honors College main office for the Dean's signature.
You must make an "A" or "B" in the course and complete your designated work in order to receive credit. Once your form is turned in, no further action is required on the part of the student. The Honors College office will contact your professor at the end of the semester to see if you have completed your contract, and then you will receive an honors designation on the course within 1-2 months after the end of the semester. There are additional rules for contracting printed on the form itself.
Contracts are due to the Honors College main office by the last day of the add/drop period.
