Honors 499: Honors Independent Study ⇒ 2 or 4-credits, does not count toward a general education

We have created 4-Year Plans for each major and made the requisite substitutions to give you an idea of what an Honors student’s 4-Year Plan might look like. Most of the courses can be taken any semester with a few exceptions:

  • Honors First-Year Seminar is taken in the first semester.
  • Honors Independent Studies should be taken Fall of Senior year or with rare exception, Spring of Junior year.*

*Nursing students must take all Honors courses in the first two years.

Please remember to always speak with your adviser about your Honors status and your goals to graduate with Honors! They can help you look several semesters ahead to plan accordingly, but it is important that you both have a mutual understanding of what is required of you as an Honors student.

Keep in mind that the following 4-Year Plans are just examples and are not set in stone.
