Every semester Honors hosts an event to showcase its upcoming courses. Professors will explain their honors course that they will be teaching in the following semester. While the event is not mandatory to register for honors courses there are two significant benefits of going.
A. You receive a preview of both the course subject and professor of each honors course. This is useful in deciding which course to choose during registration.
B. You have a chance to win first pick of an honors class of your choosing. While you receive early registration status as an honor student, this benefit is shared by all honor students. This means that honors courses fill up quickly since everyone can register for the classes early. The Meet the Professor "lottery" provides the chance for a lucky few honors students to reserve a seat in the class of their choosing. This opportunity is only available to attendees of the event.
The course examines clinical, legal and psychosocial conditions of adults who, due to mental illness, developmental impairments, brain injuries or aging, are declared “incapacitated” and have court-appointed guardians. Students will serve as probate court representatives (i.e., Court Visitors) who inspect living conditions/services for individuals under court-ordered guardianships (service learning component). Instructor approval required.
Students enrolled in HON 4390B work with the guidance of their supervising professor to complete their honors thesis. In addition, thesis students present their thesis project at the Honors thesis forum or undergraduate research conference. You can find more information about this course here.

Everyone Must Register Online
Your request or lottery win does not enroll you in a course; to register, you must do so via CatsWeb. If you did win the Meet the Professor lottery you should be able to register for the course that you won the lottery for a day earlier than other honors students.
After that day all other honors students should be able to register for the honors courses on CatsWeb. Honors students can then register for as many honors courses as they desire.
