Honors College

Registration Process


Registration Process

  1. Honors Students have priority registration status.
  2. Student must first contact their individual college Academic Advisors and follow their registration rules. College advising must be completed before Priority Registration day.
  3. To take Honors College sections, student have to be permitted by the Honors College. (No one else can permit into our sections.)  Student must meet with the Honors College Requirement Coordinator to be permitted. 

How to Process an Honors Contract 

  1. Get the Honors contract form from the Honors College office or print it off our website.
  2. Obtain the Professor’s consent to take the course for Honors credit and develop, in conjunction with the Professor, a description of the proposed Honors component for the course. (If the Professor is interested, but needs more information, they should call the Honors College.)
  3. Complete the Honors contract form with the Professor. (All signatures are required.) The Honors component must be listed on the contract form or attach on a signed separate sheet of paper.  The Honors College can no longer accepted “topic to be determined” listing for the Honors component.
  4. Note: It is critical that the uses Blackboard question be marked yes if the Professor uses Blackboard in this class.  The Honors College will then place a merge request with iTech to link the original Course Registration Number (CRN) and the Honors CRN.
  5. Then the student turns the completed form into the Honors College and typically will be asked to stay in the office to complete the process.
  6. The Honors College will create the Honors contract CRN in Banner. (Only the Honors College can create HR sections.)
  7. The student will be instructed to go on Blue & Gold to drop the original CRN and add the Honors CRN. This is the only way the “Honors” designation will show on your transcript. It is up to the student to move into the Honors CRN.

When are Honors Contracts Processed?

The Honors contract period opens for three weeks the day after priority registration (April and October).  Contract steps one through seven above must be completed within that time frame.

The only contracts that can be processed during the first few days of the Fall and Spring semester are those contracts by international HC students, those with faculty TBA listed during registration period, and for students who joined in the summer (for Fall only).

For summer contracts, all contracts must be processed and the student moved into the Honors CRN before 8:00am on the first day of the corresponding summer session.
