contracting for honors credit.

College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media


An Honors Contract is an agreement between a student and an instructor that allows the student to pursue additional in-depth work in a given subject. The central idea for the contract is that the work required indicate depth and originality as opposed to more class work.

Ideally, contract ideas should be initiated by the students; however, the instructor may also suggest topics for the student to explore. In the past, students have prepared audio-visual presentations, produced a short play, or worked with the instructor on an ongoing research project.

Honors Contracts can be picked up from the following locations:

    Honors Program - ASH 105
    Katie Cameron - WFAB 311
    Chantel Crocket - ASH 140

Honors Contract forms are due in the Honors Office by the last day to drop classes with a "W;" usually the first Friday in November for the Fall semester and the first Friday in April for the Spring semester.

  • Students should approach professors early in the semester to request contract for credit.
  • Students have until the last withdraw date of the semester to turn in contracts.


Honors program questions should be directed to one of the CFAM program coordinator:
