Academic Plan

Students with sophomore standing or higher will work with their faculty advisor to develop an academic plan that leads to graduation with Honors or Scholars distinction. Once the plan has been completed with the faculty advisor, students should meet with their Honors College advisor to review the plan and to have it signed off on by the Honors College Dean. 
 
Guidelines for Honors College Academic Plans: 
Students should work with the appropriate department (depending on their major) to choose a set of courses that will meet both the requirements for the major and the student's goals. This plan will be a non-binding "contract" called the Honors College Academic Plan. The Honors College Academic Plan will articulate a clear set of professional goals and include proposed coursework and activities to help the student achieve those goals. All Honors College Academic Plans must be approved by the Honors College Dean and will be kept on file in the Honors College Office. 
 
Depending on the major(s) and goals of the student, the Honors College Academic Plan might include additional honors work in established courses, enrollment in graduate courses, participation in a faculty member's research project or laboratory, an independent research project, a service learning project, and/or an internship, job, or co-op experience. If appropriate, students will also be encouraged to attend professional meetings.
