Honors Priority Registration Deadline March 4, Advising Offered

Honors & Undergraduate Research has announced that the upcoming deadline for students to request Honors Priority Registration (HPR) for Fall 2011 course registration is March 4.  HPR is a privilege afforded students who are pursuing one or more honors transcript distinctions. This privilege is intended to assist students in scheduling the rest of their courses around the relatively limited honors course offerings.  HPR occurs on the two days before the start of registration.

HPR Eligibility
Students are eligible for HPR if they are…

  1. Honors eligible AND
  2. meet the participation requirement.

The participation requirement is satisfied if the student is currently enrolled in an honors course OR if the student is an Honors Candidate (i.e. has completed nine or more credit hours of Honors course work at Texas A&M University).

HPR Request Procedure
To receive HPR privileges, students must request it via the Honors website, at http://honors.tamu.edu/curriculum/HonorsCourses_Registration.shtml

An Honors Candidate who has requested HPR will be granted an honors start time. Students who are not yet Honors Candidates must also complete an advising contact to ensure that they have a good understanding of the requirements for completing an honors transcript distinction.  Non-Honors candidates (i.e. students who have not yet completed nine credit hours of Honors course work at Texas A&M) will not receive HPR if they do not complete an advising contact.

To satisfy the advising contact requirement, students may…

  1. request a one-on-one advising appointment by contacting the Honors Programs office at 979-845-1957;
  2. listen to the podcast that is linked after completing the HPR request form; or
  3. attend one of the scheduled group advising sessions listed below:
