Students talking in the Student Union.


Occasionally, an Honors Student will complete a noteworthy experience that does not fit into the existing categories of Honors Experiences. When this occurs, the student may petition to include the experience towards their Honors credits by submitting an Honors Experience Petition form.

Some examples of successful petitions include:

It is strongly suggested that you discuss the merits and reasoning behind this petition with your advisor before filling it out.

Whether you have completed the experience or are just starting, all students must submit the Honors Experience Petition Request (PDF) first. Be sure to include any supporting documentation such as letters of support or publications. Petition Requests may be submitted electronically to or in person to 106 Capen Hall. When you download the writable PDF, be sure to save it to your computer under a different file name prior to saving and sending.

Petitions are accepted on a rolling basis. Decisions are typically made within 6-8 weeks of receipt of the petition request form. Once a decision has been reached, you will be notified via email to complete the Petition Completion essay and form.
