Honors Sections of University Core Curriculum Courses
Every semester, the Honors College offers Honors sections of several University Core Curriculum (UCC) courses. Honors sections are more intense than traditional sections, they rely more upon discussion, and they are capped at 20 students. Before priority registration begins in the fall and spring semester, the Honors College Office produces a list of all Honors sections of UCC courses and shares it with students via e-mail. The list can also be found on the Honors College webpage.
Registration Process: All incoming freshmen (current high school seniors) are registered by the registrar. Current students: See your advisor before October 15th to discuss your Spring 2022 courses and get your alternate pin. For more information about permits and the registration process click here.
