Approved Fine Arts Event!
Fine Arts Event for HNRC 102!!
Attend the poetry reading, writer’s Q&A, and book signing featuring award-winning poet, Maggie Anderson. She will be reading from her latest book of poetry, Dear All, which negotiates the perceptions and self-deceptions we live with and, through both humor and surprise, finds a way to bear them.
Honors College students are among those with priority registration privileges and should receive a scheduling time for March 26 beginning at 1 PM. If you do not receive a scheduling time proximate to the 26th, contact Kevin Berezansky at email@example.com. Honors College administrative offices are now in Pratt 308.
CHC students should schedule a meeting with their advisor to discuss plans for the fall semester and receive a registration PIN. Remember that 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. Please print a copy of the Honors College Curriculum to share with your adviser and explain how the CHC curriculum meets your liberal studies requirements.
- If you are a junior next year you will need to schedule HNRC 201 (junior core). Sophomore Nursing and Allied Health majors also need to schedule junior core next fall to stay on track for clinicals in the junior year. There is no specific Honors Core course next fall for sophomores.
- If you are not a junior or senior or nursing major, enrollment is by permission only.
- In addition to the Honors Core Curriculum, CHC students must complete a 3 credit Honors Elective and an HNRC 499 substitution (Honors Senior Synthesis).
- Until we undergo curriculum revision, the following are suitable 499 substitutes: a graduate level course, a significant study abroad experience, a second CHC elective, an internship, an Honors independent study or an Honors thesis.
- 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.
- Students must be within 32 credits of graduation to pursue a graduate course for 499 credit. 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.”
Honors courses offered next fall can be found online at the Universitywide Class Schedule. You can search by the Honors “Course Attribute” to see them all.
Dear Student Leaders and Advisors,
We are excited to announce that the fifth annual Research Experience for Summer Scholars (RESS) program will run this summer from June 4th -August 9th; uniting student, staff, and faculty researchers through stimulating social and scholarly events.

All IUP students from all majors are welcome to participate. Encourage your students in classes, student organizations and in research to
