Honors College students are among those with priority registration privileges and should receive a scheduling time beginning on Tuesday, April 2.   If you do not receive a scheduling time close to April 2, contact Kevin Berezansky at

CHC students should schedule a meeting shortly following spring break with their advisor to discuss scheduling for the fall 2019 semester.  You must meet with your advisor to receive a registration PIN.  Don’t wait until the last week before April.  Faculty time is limited to office hours and scheduling is crunch time for them.  If you have questions about your honors college requirements you can schedule an appointment with Kevin Berezansky before meeting with your adviser.

If it helps, print a copy of the Honors College Core Curriculum to share with your adviser and explain how the CHC curriculum meets your liberal studies requirements.  Hard copies will also be available in Whitmyre on the table outside Dr. Finegan’s office.


  • First year students have no core classes to schedule for the fall as Sophomores.  They also have no fine arts requirements since they are not in core.
  • First year Nursing and Allied Health majors need to schedule Junior Core (HNRC 201) and ENGL 202 H for the fall semesterto stay on track for clinicals in the junior year.  Some Nursing majors will have completed the H elective as MATH 217.  Print the following to take with you to your advising session to assist in integrating CHC and Nursing requirements  (Honors Nursing Curriculum.)
  • All sophomores need to schedule Junior Core HNRC 201 for fall.
  • In addition to the Honors Core Curriculum, CHC students must complete a 3 credit Honors Elective and an Experiential Education Component to graduate.
  • The following are suitable experiential education components: a graduate level course, a significant study abroad experience, a second CHC elective, an internship, an Honors independent study or Honors thesis.  Students must be within 32 credits of graduation to pursue a graduate course as the Honors Experiential.  IUP’s policy for undergraduates pursuing a graduate course is as follows: “IUP undergraduate students with an academic grade point average of at least 2.6 who are within thirty-two semester hours of graduation are permitted, after receiving appropriate approvals, to take up to six semester hours of graduate work whether or not they have applied for acceptance into an IUP graduate program.”
  • Transfer students may be exempt from some requirements.  CHC students who entered the program after their first semester of college should schedule a meeting to be sure they are meeting all their honors requirements and the Liberal Studies requirements.
  • If you have difficulty finding a relevant Honors elective and are unable to complete ENGL 202 H, you may add an H to any existing course to meet this requirement.  The form Adding and H to an Existing Course outlines the process you will need to follow to request this exception.  Any course may be converted with the assistance of the teaching professor and submitted to the Honors College for approval.  Honors Electives Available this Spring

Honors courses offered this fall can be found online at the Universitywide Class Schedule.
