An Honors Project Contract allows the student to add an Honors component to courses, with instructor permission. The student and instructor sign a contract agreeing to follow Palm Beach State College Honors requirements. In the initial phase of an Honors Project Contract, the instructor meets with the student to determine the topic of the project. The student decides which model his or her project will follow (see below). After the model and topic are determined, the instructor continues to meet with the student throughout the term to receive updates on the student's progress and to give guidance and advice on the project. During the term, the student will present the completed project to the class. For more information on this process, the instructor should refer to the checklist, faculty procedures, or contact the Honors office.
Note: Honors courses may not be offered via e-Learning or as pure Internet.
