Honors in Independent Study
Outstanding independent work may be cited for "Honors in Independent Study" at Honors Convocation. Such recognition is based solely on the excellence of the special project and is considered independently of a student's academic average or other qualifying factors. The independent study project need not be in the student's major field and is available to all students in any class, not just to seniors.
Work submitted for consideration for Honors in Independent Study normally would have been done under the rubric of independent study as listed in the Academic Catalog. This means that course papers, comprehensive projects, etc., would not ordinarily be eligible for consideration; they receive other awards.
