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.
First-year students: If you have not yet been assigned a Fellow by the below Agreement Form deadline, your Honors Advisor must approve your summer activity in place of a Fellow, and sign your Agreement Form.
When completing an optional summer activity, you can submit electronically by scanning and sending signed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org if submitting in person is not possible over the summer. Electronic signatures or email confirmations from Fellows and/or Supervisors will also be accepted for the summer.
Summer paperwork deadlines for Agreement and Completion Forms are as follows:
Agreement Forms: Due Friday, June 26, 2020 at 4pm
Completion Forms: Due Friday, August 7, 2020 at 4pm
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.
