Helpful Hints for Joining the Honors Program
If you are interested in joining the University Honors Program at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette you can do so during your remote orientation session. In orientation this summer there will be online videos with information for the University Honors Program, but also a space for you to sign up for the Honors Program by filling in a form to join. Once you fill this form out completely and submit we will then contact you to let you know you have been added into our program. Helpful hints:
Honors freshmen/transfer students should take at least 1 Honors course the first semester, and a list of these courses is found on our website's homepage if you click the link under the "Find It Quick" menu titled "Fall 2020 Course Offerings
Review Courses: All incoming freshman need a UNIV 100. Honors students can take a H## section, and count this as the first Honors course. Most of our students will also take ENGL 115 (which is the Honors version of ENGL 102), or HIST 103 (the Honors version of HIST 101) or any of our other Honors courses. You need an Honors course each semester until you reach 6 courses, and you may take more than one Honors course in a semester.
for "I can't find an Honors course or the Honors course I want conflicts in my schedule." Transfer students or incoming freshmen with this issue can "contract" a non-Honors course to turn it into Honors. Check under our "Find It Quick" menu item "Honors Contracts
" to learn more.
