Academic H-Option

Academic H-Options allow students to receive Honors credit for non-Honors courses by undertaking more extensive or advanced work than would be normally required. This will not add additional credits to your course; rather, the Honors College will recognize the existing credits as Honors flex credits. After confirming that you have completed the contract assignments with sufficient quality, we will tag the course with an Honors designation on your transcript (typically four weeks after the end of the semester).

These contracts are only allowed for students with good academic standing in the Honors College. Eligible courses are 200-level and above, preferably in your discipline. H-Option contracts will not be approved for a course if an Honors section of that course is available during the same semester.
