Course Sequencing

The schedule below lays out the courses that you will take during each semester of the Honors College and the General Education (Gen-Ed) requirements each course fulfills. Some of the HC courses actually fulfill two Gen-Ed requirements—you earn only three credits for each—thus allowing Honors students room to take more upper-level courses in (and out of) their declared majors. Your advisor will help you decide which Gen-Ed classes would be best for you to replace with honors classes.
