Honors Thesis/Project Forms & Deadlines

Honors Mentors and the Honors Mentor Form

Most students file the Honors Mentor Form twice, first when they reach 84 cumulative credits and again when they identify a faculty mentor. When you cross the 84 Credit threshold you must file an Honors Mentor Form (pdf) with the Honors College to remain in good standing. If you are not graduating within the next year and do not yet have a mentor indicate when you will begin your Honors Thesis/Project and refile your Mentor Form in the "Explanation" field of the form.
