Forms for the fall semester are due no later than Monday, September 12.
These online forms are not a substitute for discussing your plans with your advisor. You should talk with your advisor and Departmental Honors Coordinator before submitting the form. A list of current Honors coordinators is available here (scroll to the bottom).
You must use your professor’s Domino Directory email address ([name]@american.edu), available here.
Only start the form once you are prepared to complete it. If you navigate away from the page, your information will not be saved.
Please read the forms thoroughly as each contains unique instructions.
500-Level Graduate Supplement Form
This form is for students taking 500-level and above graduate courses. Students taking graduate courses who complete the graduate-level work and are evaluated as if they were graduate students can receive upper-level Honors credit for the classes by completing this form. Students must obtain permission from the professor prior to completing this form as not every 500 level course may earn Honors credit.
Honors Capstone Form
This form is necessary for all students completing an Honors Capstone. It is used instead of Standard or Graduate Supplement Forms if a supplement is intended to be used as an Honors Capstone.
AU Abroad Supplements
Students studying abroad who are interested in supplementing courses for Honors credit need to schedule an appointment with Honors staff to discuss their options.
