What is an Honors Contract?

In addition to Honors Courses and Seminars, an Honors student has the ability to pursue an Honors Contract to receive Honors credits. An Honors Contract is something that can be added to any regular course at AACC and an Honors student receives an additional college credit (1) for the work done for each contract. An Honors student who pursues an Honors Contract is responsible for payment of the additional one (1) college credit earned. An Honors Contract is a project-based learning experience with a faculty mentor completed concurrently with a non-Honors course. At the heart of the AACC Honors Contract is a substantial project that is is completed in addition to the required work for the course. Honors Contracts are a great opportunity to be creative and take the regular course material and expand on it by integrating personal interests and interdisciplinary topics and methodologies.
