Honors List A and List B Course Contract Information

List A Contracts:
A List A Contract offers the opportunity for students to receive honors credit in a regular version of a course that is sometimes offered as an honors version ("H"Course/List A course).

Willingness to write a List A Contract with a student is at the discretion of the Faculty teaching the course, and approval of the Honors Director. It is preferred that the Faculty have previously taught the honors version of the course, or have written previous List A Contract with students (formerly titled "Honors Study Contracts"), and/or had significant experience teaching in the discipline/subject matter.

Courses available for a List A Contract are here under List A courses

It may be appropriate to write a List A contract for the following reasons:

  • When student's schedule/education plan does not allow for enrolling in the honors version
  • When the honors version course needed is not being offered due to regular course rotation
  • When the student needs the honors units toward the 15 unit requirement for Honors Scholar Designation, UCLA TAP and/or "Completion of the Honors Program".

List B Contracts:
A List B Contract offers the opportunity for students to receive honors credit for a List B course.

Willingness to write a List B Contract with a student is at the discretion of the Faculty teaching the course, and approval of the Honors Director. It is preferred that the Faculty have previously written Contracts with students, and/or had significant experience teaching in the discipline/subject matter.

Note: A maximum of 6 units from LIST B courses may be applied to Honors Scholar Designation, UCLA TAP Certification, UC Irvine certification and HTCC verification.

In certain instances, honors faculty may invite students to write an Honors Contract as their first entree' into the Honors Transfer Program. If new Honors students pursue an Honors Contract, they may apply to the Honors Program either in the first 4 weeks of the semester, or during the last 4 weeks of the semester.
