Pre-AU22 Honors Requirements

Most students will not be completing an Honors Contract at this point, if you believe you should, please see your advisor

The Honors Contract allows you to construct an especially challenging curriculum by incorporating strong course work, such as honors classes and 4000-level classes, throughout your program of study. When approved by the Arts and Sciences (ASC) Honors Committee, an Honors Contract admits you to candidacy for graduation with honors in the Arts and Sciences. If you complete your Honors Contract curriculum with a minimum 3.4 cumulative grade point average on at least 60 graded semester credit hours at Ohio State, you will graduate with honors in the Arts and Sciences, which will be noted on your diploma and transcript.

Pursuing a major in the arts?  (Art, Art Education, Dance, Design, Music, Theatre, Arts Management, Film Studies, History of Art, Moving-Image Production) See the Arts Honors Program website for more information.
