Honors Program Classes, Core Substitutions

Honors seminars count as core for students who are part of the Honors program. A seminar substitutes for the designated departmental core course of the teaching faculty member. For example, if a professor from the English department teaches a Honors seminar, and if the student needs a core literature course, the Honors seminar fulfills the second literature English core requirement. The substitutions are noted on the advisee module as “MS.” If a student takes a seminar and has already met the core requirement that corresponds to it, the course is credited as an elective. The Honors Project, SC 405, does not count as the core.

When registering, Honors should remind their departmental advisors that seminars meet core requirements. After the drop period is over, Honors in seminars will be given a form to complete and return to the Office of the Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs. This serves as a hard-copy to verify substitution in the registrar’s office. After course grades are finalized, the substitutions, if needed, will be noted on each student’s advising module.
