Honors-By-Contract

Honors-By-Contract (HBC) is an option for Honors students who are 1 or 2 classes short of graduating with the JKW School of Honors Diploma.

Students may not take more than one HBC per semester.  HBC is not an option
if a section of that course is currently running in Honors.  In addition,
Honors-by-Contract may be available to students in independent study in
advanced courses.

Students may take a regular section of a desired course for
Honors credit if: the course is not offered in the Honors Program schedule
of courses; the professor teaching the course agrees to assign the student
an Honors Project in addition to the regular course requirements, and agrees
to mentor the student.

The Honors-by-Contract form is completed and signed at the
beginning and end of the semester.  The contract stipulates all required
provisions in detail.  The student and professor must complete sections of
the form and then it must be brought to the Department Chair for approval.
Once approved by the Department Chair, the student must then bring the form to
the Honors Office in Room S-347.  The School of Honors Director will make
the final determination if the contract will go into effect.  At the end of
the semester, the professor must return the completed form with the
student’s grade to the JKW School of Honors in Room S-347.
