Honors Program: Dig Deeper, Aim Higher

Honors Contract List

An honors contract is a one-credit-hour extension of a regular course that allows more in-depth investigation of a subject. Honors contracts are offered in a variety of classes as a means for students to gain more knowledge about specific topics covered in a class. The focus of the contract is determined by discussions between the student and faculty mentor.

Students do not have to be in the honors program to enroll in a contract, but must have a 3.5 GPA or better.


Enrollment is during the first three weeks of the spring and fall semesters and during the first week of the summer session. Students may enroll in a contract associated with a class they are currently enrolled in or a class they completed the previous semester (with instructor discretion).

The process starts in the honors office, COM 201. Stop in to see what type of exciting opportunities are involved with a contract. You can request information about contracts in the honors office, COM 201, at 913-469-2512 or by email.
