CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR SPECIAL HONORS IN THE PLAN II HONORS PROGRAM IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

On page 247, in the section ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES, under the heading HONORS, make the following changes:

Plan II [Special] Honors Program: Special Honors

Plan II students who plan to seek special honors in Plan II should apply to the director of the Plan II Honors Program for enrollment in Tutorial Course 660H, Thesis Course, at least two semesters before they expect to graduate. A University grade point average of at least 3.50 is required. The requirements for graduation with special honors are (1) Tutorial Course 660H with a grade of A in each half, or a departmental equivalent with a grade of A; (2) [completion of] satisfactory performance on an oral honors examination [with a grade of at least 85]; (3) a University grade point average of at least 3.50; and (4) completion at the University of at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree.

Rationale: The grade of 85 on the oral examination has not been enforced, and the simplified wording accurately describes both the goal and the current practice.
