Thesis Credit and Honors Experiences

The following guidelines apply only to students who began UHP prior to Fall 2018. Students beginning Fall 2018 or later should consult the Current Honors Requirements. Specifically, a Thesis Course is required for students beginning UHP Fall 2018 or later.

Most major departments provide a means for students to earn 3-6 academic credits in conjunction with their thesis. This credit may be earned in an honors thesis course or course sequence, or through an independent honors thesis credit registration with faculty supervision.


Completing the coursework or credits associated with the thesis satisfies one Honors Experience; submitting the final, approved thesis to the University Honors Program satisfies an additional Honors Experience.
