Exceptions to this standard plan may be made for students who, for instance, join the Honors Program after matriculating, who participate in other Honors College programs, or who follow a specialized "Honors track" established by the Honors Program and some other Baylor academic unit. See the Honors Program Student Handbook (PDF) for details.
Incoming Honors students for whom a First-Year Seminar is unavailable or otherwise inadvisable may, with the consent of program staff, enroll in some other Honors-designated course to satisfy this first-semester requirement.
Some Honors juniors may enroll in both of the required Advanced Readings/Research hours in one semester, though it is usually advisable to spread them out over two semesters.
Credit for additional Honors units may be earned by enrolling in other available Honors-designated courses (including Honors courses-by-contract) that are offered in various academic schools and departments.
