Yes. You may submit it in the Administration mail room. However, the program has migrated
to an electronic submission due to efficiency and convenience for both students and
the coordinator. Please see How to Apply. If you still wish to drop off your application, there is a mail drop slot right
outside the door on the outside of the building (ADM116). Please clearly mark your
envelope "Mehrdad Khosravi, Honors Program Coordinator."
If you are not eligible for EWRT1A, you need to be eligible by the quarter you are
accepted into the program. For example, if you are taking EWRT211 and READ211 in the
Fall Quarter, then you may apply during the fall for a Winter Quarter admission.
You may take ONE Honors class before joining the Honors Program as long as the instructor
allows you to do so and you meet the Honors Program eligibility requirements. If you
do not meet the requirements but would still like to add the class, please contact
the Honors Program coordinator to discuss your situation. If you want to take any
more Honors classes in the future, you must apply for and be accepted into the Honors
Program. This includes taking a second Honors class after taking and dropping the
first class with a "W" grade.
No. The Honors class does not add extra points to your GPA. For example, an A grade
in an Honors class is a 4.0, just as if the class were not Honors. However, the Honors
class will appear with the title "Honors" on your transcript. Unofficially, the schools
to which you want to transfer will most likely look at your transcript and realize
that the Honors class was more challenging than the regular class, thus boosting the
strength of your transcript.
