For Current Honors Students

  • Graduating Seniors: schedule your Honors exit interview meeting now!  You may request an appointment for January or February by sending Dr. Barnes three possible times when you and your faculty mentor are available.  Beat the rush and reserve your spot for early in the semester.
  • The Honors Permit Request Process is open to current Honors students. 


Prepare for your best year yet in Honors: learn about the variety of ways to earn Honors course credit.

Check out this PowerPoint presentation on New Ways to Earn Honors Credit. It's not just about Honors classes anymore.  Read all about it here.

Further details are available under "Honors Classes" on the drop-down menu at left for this section. Talk to your Honors Liaison, a faculty member in your discipline who can help you tailor Honors experiences in your major that challenge and excite you. Your department's Honors Liaison can support your search for a research mentor who shares your interests, guide you in the preparation of a proposal for an Honors credit-bearing experience, and connect you with opportunities you might not know about!
