To remain an active member of the Honors College, you need to earn Honors credits. There are several ways for you to earn Honors credits.

  • Take Honors classes at UNT.
  • Study Abroad. You’ll earn three Honors credits for each semester you study abroad and three for an approved UNT summer program toward the Honors Scholar or Distinguished Honors Scholar Award.
  • Honors mentored research.
  • Writing an Honors thesis.
  • Honors Contracts allow you the privilege of earning Honors credit for non-honors courses through additional study and projects. Undertaking an Honors contract enriches the learning process.  You can broaden your understanding of a subject through in-depth research.  It also gives you flexibility if you're unable to find Honors classes pertaining to your major.
