A Guide for Students on How to Set Up an Honors Tutorial (HN 351 or 352)

You may wish to print this page if you are submitting a request for a tutorial.

Honors Tutorials offer you the opportunity to further explore a topic that you previously studied in an Honors seminar or colloquium. To set up a tutorial:

  1. Consult with the instructor of the original HN class and see if he or she would be willing to guide you through the tutorial.
  2. You and your instructor should then design a tutorial project and determine the number of credit hours you'd like to take.
  3. Develop a tutorial request which includes:
    • 100-word description of your project,
    • number of credit hours you'd like to carry (HN351 carries 1 credit hour; HN352 carries 2 credit hours),
    • a list of readings,
    • a list of assignments/papers etc.
      The request has to be signed by you and the instructor.
  4. Submit your tutorial request to the Honors Program office (JH153D). Once your request is approved, the Honors program coordinator will fill out a blue card for you. The blue card needs to be signed by your academic advisor before it can be turned in to Registration and Records.
