Graduate School Adopts Policy Allowing Honors College Students to Enroll in Graduate Courses

The Honors College at Auburn University offers a select cohort of high-ability students a unique academic experience designed to provide many of the advantages of a small college in addition to the opportunities available at a large research university. Students in the Honors College receive an intensive and innovative education with a curriculum that was developed to provide students the opportunity for challenging scholarly courses.

On Wednesday, September 11, 2013, the Auburn University Graduate Council adopted a policy allowing Honors College students to enroll in graduate courses. Honors students now have the opportunity to count a maximum of nine to twelve hours towards both their undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Thanks to this access to graduate courses, Honors students will enjoy close personal contacts with their faculty and other outstanding students, complete one-third of a master’s program as an undergraduate student, utilize undergraduate scholarship dollars while completing graduate classes, and enhance their ability to be outstanding applicants for graduate programs and employment opportunities.
