Honors contracts may vary in format, but all require regular meetings with the course instructor and culminate in some tangible evidence of the student's additional effort. This evidence must be in addition to, not an extension of, a paper or assignment already given in the course.
Contracts are now a half-unit course, created after the approval of an Honors Contract Request. This class meets the equivalent of nine 50-minute sessions. That can be done in fewer longer sessions (e.g., five 90-minute class sessions), but no more than nine class sessions, dates and times set by the instructor.
