What course questions are directed at my Honors Counselor vs. my Academic Advisor?
Honors Counselors can address most technical, logistic, and some scheduling issues related to Honors (HNPG) courses and some Honors elective courses (ex. SOC 001H). Honors elective course issues may need to be handled by the faculty teaching that course. Honors Counselors also provide resources around general course concerns (ex. career path, course info, etc.). Question on syllabi, attendance, grading, assignments, etc. should be directed at the faculty of record for the course. Academic Advisors can address: what counts for breadth, adding/dropping a course; unit cap concerns; adding/changing a major and/or minor; review of 4-year course plan; courses meet major requirements, etc.
The elective I want to take is not available, when will it next be available?
Honors courses vary by quarter, but there is some overlap with courses that are usually offered during fall, winter, and/or spring. Not all courses offered in a previous quarter are offered again in that quarter. We do not offer Honors courses during the summer. To view what is being or has been offered you can search the Schedule of Classes.
I want to enroll in an Honors course, but I am getting an error message that says I do not meet the prerequisite, when I believe I do. What do I do?
For any Honors course with the HNPG heading, please contact your designated Honors Counselor. For any Honors elective course (ex. SOC 001H), please contact the faculty who teaches that course.
Will the Religious Studies and World History course I am required to take as an incoming freshman count toward my elective requirement?
No, the Religious Studies and World History first year requirements are a separate requirement from the elective requirement. (Not applicable to students who joined University Honors as a second year or beyond or students who joined as incoming freshmen pre F18).
