If a student signs up for any honors course that is given by the College then once the change of registration period has ended for the semester, the student no longer has the option to drop the honors course and change to a regular section of that same course. In addition, the student may be assigned any grade from A to F
for the honors course. Accordingly, the Mathematics Department imposes the same conditions when a student signs up for an Honors -by-Contract (HBC) arrangement in any mathematics course.
Unlike Honors-by-Contract (HBC) arrangements in other disciplines, after the date specified on the Mathematics HBC request form, the student no longer has the option to change to regular status and the student will be assigned a grade for the HBC course that could be any of the grades A to F. As with any honors course, the student may withdraw from the course in which they are engaged in an HBC up to the regular withdrawal deadline for courses. They do not have the option to withdraw from the HBC and not the course.
Students engaged in an HBC arrangement in any mathematics course, will not complete a single project but rather they will be required to:
Each student who engages in an HBC arrangement in any mathematics course will be required to sign an addendum to the regular HBC contract that describes these additional conditions.
