Special Kinds of Academic Credit

Honors Summer Independent Reading

A special summer independent study program is offered to qualified students enrolled at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor). Students with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 and no unfinished courses on the transcript, and who are not enrolled in the College or elsewhere for both spring and summer half terms or the equivalent, may elect up to eight hours of credit during the summer. A maximum 15 hours of Honors Summer Independent Reading credit may be counted in the 120 credits required for a degree.

Any appropriate course regularly offered by the College may be elected, pending departmental approval. A faculty member at the rank of assistant professor or higher must supervise the work; lecturers and teaching assistants may not supervise Honors Summer Independent Reading. Courses elected through this program are not correspondence courses even though the course work is completed off-campus. Credit earned in the program is considered in-residence credit and earns honor points. Students interested in Honors Summer Reading should schedule an appointment in the Honors Office.
