Do not fill this out when:

  • You are enrolled in HONR:3994, URES:3993, or URES:3994 and earning semester hour credit for your research.
    • WHY: These specific registrations will automatically count as research credit on your Honors degree audit.

Fill this out when:

  • Your research experience is not earning honors credit through an HONR:3994, URES:3993, or URES:3994 registration and you wish to count your experience toward University Honors.
    • WHY: If we don't know about your research experience and our student records system isn't already set up to recognize it, we don't know to give you credit unless you fill out this form.

You might want to fill this out when:

  • Your research will ultimately be part of a project completed for honors in your major.
    • WHY: Completing honors in the major satisfies the total credits needed for experiential learning. However, if something happens that prevents you from completing honors in the major, you'll at least have the research credits verified ahead of time.

What to know:

  • Submit one research experience per semester per form. Multiple submissions per student are allowed.
  • Submit towards the end of or just after the semester in which you are completing research so that we can accurately recognize the hours you have worked.
  • If approved, your research experience(s) will appear on your University Honors degree audit within two weeks.
  • Students can earn a maximum of four honors credits for research in fall and spring semesters, and a maximum of six honors credits for research in the summer.
  • Be as exact as possible with start and end dates, and try to provide a single average of hours worked per week (rather than a range of hours). Submissions with vague dates or a large range of hours can sometimes result in fewer credits than you may have actually earned.
