University Honors Program | Reimbursements

The Honors Program encourages faculty teaching Honors sections or colloquia and faculty serving as mentors for Honors 101 to use the city of Washington as a laboratory and to establish personal bonds with these talented and motivated students.

For these reasons, faculty are encouraged to arrange for  guest speakers, plan field trips, purchase course equipment or materials, and create social occasions that enlarge and deepen the education of Honors students.  

Faculty offering this enlarged education will be reimbursed up to $100 per course or up to $200 per freshman mentor group.   

Please read through to the end of this page before submitting your request.

Deadlines 

Fall Semester: All reimbursement requests must be received by the last day of fall classes.  

Spring Semester: All reimbursement requests must be received by the last day of spring classes.  

These deadlines allow Honors and Accounts Payable sufficient time to process these reimbursements by university fiscal deadlines.
