Participation in a distinctive educational opportunity outside of the classroom may count as an Honors Experience. These experiences must exhibit significant levels of participation and adhere to non-course Honors Experience guidelines in order to be approved. You should discuss all non-course options with your honors advisor.
Examples of non-course Honors Experiences include:
- Faculty-Directed Research and Creative Expression Projects
- Learning Abroad
- Community Engagement Projects and Volunteering
- Honors NEXUS Experiences
- Tutoring, including the Twin Cities School Engagement Program
- Other experiences like National Student Exchange, certain summer jobs, and NEXUS One cohort projects may qualify under special circumstances. Begin the approval process by having a conversation with your advisor.
