HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.      ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Completing the Honors Program:
We have heard from many students who are confused about the timeline to complete the Honors Program. There is no deadline to take your four honors courses, i.e. you do *not* have to take four courses within your first four semesters at UF. You have priority to register for honors courses during that time, but you do not have to take all of them during that time. You may continue to work toward the Honors Certificate of Completion as long as you are an undergraduate. Please note that IDH 3931: Science for Life does not count as one of the four honors courses.

Additionally, honors internship and research credit may be used to count toward your four honors courses. For more information on how to register for internship or research credit, visit http://www.honors.ufl.edu/forms.html

When you have completed your four honors courses and the outside activity requirement (research, internship, study abroad, leadership, or service), you may submit the Certificate of Completion application to 118 Hume: http://www.honors.ufl.edu/forms/completion.pdf
