Honors Student Registration
Honors students receive priority registration appointments (“pick times”) compared to other students of the same academic standing.
Check for Honors Credit Grading
Log into Student Admin, go to Self Service > Weekly Schedule select List View and Term while looking at courses/sections you are registered for, check in the Grading section for “Honors credit”. Courses marked with Honors credit grading will earn Honors credit on your transcript as long as you earn a B- or above.
“Invalid Grading Basis”
If you receive an error about an “invalid grading basis” when registering for a course, remove it from your shopping cart. You can then re-add it to your shopping cart and enroll.
Honors Courses Open to Honors Students and Other High Achieving Undergraduates
Honors courses are open to Honors students and may be open to students who are not currently in the Honors Program. Students currently in the UConn Honors Program have priority registration in Honors courses. Students with strong academic motivation and good cumulative GPAs (generally 3.2 or better) who are not currently in the Honors Program may ask to fill open seats in Honors courses.
