Contract Procedures & Forms
Completing an Honors Contract
Students receive Honors credit by completing an Honors Contract in any UC transferable course. In consultation with the instructor, the student develops a proposal for an Honors research project. In most cases, the project should be a written assignment that displays interpretation and critical analysis of academic texts (journal articles or books written by experts in an academic discipline). Alternative project submissions can be found clearly outlined in Project Expectations. The proposal is submitted and evaluated to the Honors director. The Honors director will either approve the project or suggest revisions. When the final project is completed, the student must submit one copy to the instructor and a second copy to the Honors director. If the Honors director approves the project, the student will receive an Honors notation on their transcript indicating that the course was complete for Honors credit.
Students receive Honors Certification by completing a total of fifteen units of UC transferable courses. Once students have completed the units required for certification, they must alert the Honors director when and where they plan to transfer. Additionally, certified students receive access to a variety of scholarship opportunities along with priority consideration for admission to UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UCLA, UCSC, Chapman University, Connecticut University, Gonzaga University, La Sierra University, Loyola Marymount University, Mills College, Occidental College, Pitzer College, Pomona College, University of La Verne, University of San Diego, Whittier College, Whitman College, CSU Fullerton, and CSU San Diego.
