In-Course Honors Contract

An In-Course Honors Contract provides an opportunity for a student to receive Honors credit for a particular course by completing an additional project. The student works with their instructor to design a project that fits the parameters of both the course outcomes and at least one of the Phi Theta Kappa Hallmarks (Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship and Service). Upon completion of the project, the instructor certifies that it meets the agreed-upon criteria to receive Honors Program credit. The project itself does not count toward the course grade.
