Honors Orientation: Advising Preparation
- Make sure to register for a section of UNHO 101 and at least one 3-4 credit honors course. Students need 4 honors courses by the end of the second year to remain in good standing with CHP (Honors Nursing and Communications Honors students only need 3).
- Although ENGL 118 doesn’t count toward one of CHP’s 7 required honors courses, if you don’t have credit for ENGL 101, it is a good idea to take 118. It may give you an honors option in your 2nd semester where ENGL 102 is slated.
This is especially necessary for STEM-related majors who choose not to take honors math and science courses.
- For Honors Chemistry, it is recommended that you have taken a rigorous chemistry class in the last couple of years.
- Honors Calc II is abstract, theoretical, and proof-based; a high school calculus class that had more “depth,” as opposed to simply covering a lot of material, is beneficial.
- For Honors Engineering Fundamentals, a good high school physics class is necessary preparation.
- If possible, don’t schedule several classes back to back or only on 2 or 3 days of the week. Building your own study blocks earlier in, and scattered throughout, the day is a great way to structure your time, break up your tasks into manageable chunks, and complete work before you get too tired.
