James Scholar Honors Program

Challenge yourself to impact the future.

Honors Plan

All current James Scholars must complete an HONORS PLAN each fall and spring semester. The electronic plan will inform the College about the method the student is choosing to complete their required honors project. The plan will route the student to the appropriate secondary form, an Honors Credit Learning Agreement (HCLA) or an Honors Experience Learning Agreement (HELA), if needed.

After student submission and instructor approval (if necessary), the process will not be complete until the College has approved the plan. Students will receive a confirmation email when the AHS approval is submitted. Some options require submission of documentation at the end of the experience, as well. Refer to Requirements for specifics on each option.

Submit Honors Plan

The deadline for submission of the Honors Plan by the student is 5:00 p.m. on the 4th Friday of each semester.

The AHS Undergraduate Student Affairs staff reserves the right to decline any Honors Plan submitted past the deadline.

For questions, feel free to contact Dr. Tonya Pulley, AHS Honors Program Coordinator, or Dr. Gretchen Adams, AHS Honors Dean.
