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 Honors students to gain more knowledge about specific topics covered in a class that is not offered as an Honors course. The focus of the contract is determined by discussions between the student and faculty mentor.


Enrollment is during the first two weeks of the spring and fall semesters. Summer session has limited availability for contracts. 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). Not all courses are approved for Honors contracts. Honors students should contact the Honors office, COM 201, at 913-469-2434 or by email for additional information.
