Honors College students are not required to engage in an Honors Activity during the summer. However, you are welcome to take advantage of the opportunity to earn additional Honors Units. You should still consult with your Faculty Fellow prior to completing the Activity, and the Agreement Form must include your Honors College Fellow’s approval and signature. Set up an appointment with your Fellow now if you know you plan to complete an Activity over the summer. You should meet with them before the spring semester ends, and do not expect that they can be responsive over the summer. For Summer 2019, paperwork will be accepted at the start of the fall semester as well, after the activity has been completed, and all additional requirements (i.e., reflection forms for service activities) will still need to be completed. It is a good idea to start your Agreement Form in HARS over the summer, even if you will not get signatures until the start of the fall, so that the Honors College has a record of your plans.
Students who are completing a summer Honors Activity but NOT registering for summer courses at UIC should NOT register for HON 222. Students who are studying abroad in the summer should register for the specific HON 222 for study abroad. If you are taking summer courses at UIC and plan to complete an optional Honors Activity over the summer, you should register for HON 222.
Please contact your Honors Advisor if you have any questions about summer Honors Activities and paperwork requirements.
