STEPS FOR HONORS COMPLETION:

1 – CHECK DPR

The Honors Requirements for Completion section under the UCRT tab on your DPR should show as complete with a green In Good Standing circle. (Or you should have a plan for finishing your final requirements.)

If a course or experience is missing, please email Jedlicka@KU.edu immediately.

2 – APPLY FOR DEGREE (AFD) in HONORS

After you make sure your Honors Requirements on your DPR are correct, you will need to Apply for a Degree (AFD) in Honors. This is the same process as applying for a degree in your major.
