A Note About Counter-signatures

An important goal for Honors conversions is to provide increased opportunities for Honors students to interact with faculty members; the guidance, insight, and feedback that professors give to students are vital parts of the conversion experience.  Therefore, it is usual for the professor teaching the course to supervise the Honors conversion work.  In some cases, however, this is not feasible or desirable so a graduate student instructor who is teaching in the course will oversee the project or group process in an Honors conversion.

If a graduate student instructor will supervise the project, both the graduate student and the faculty member teaching the course must sign the form.

If a student is requesting to convert a course that already has an Honors component, we require a statement explaining the request. The supervising instructor, whether faculty or GSI, must also endorse that explanation with a signature.
