If you’re not sure when you register, you can check your earned credit hours in GWeb using the following path: Student Records & Registration Menu > Student Records Information Menu > Transcripts > View Unofficial Transcripts. Make sure you’re looking at overall hours earned for the accurate total!

Honors Contracts

One of the unique courses that the UHP offers is the Honors Contract. Do you have interests you’d like to explore through independent research? Did you land an internship? You can receive academic credit for activities you’re already pursuing!

By completing an Honors Contract, students will create their own “syllabus” alongside any full-time GW faculty member. Honors Contract projects can be anything from a reflective paper on your internship experience to researching paintings at the art museum. Please contact Brianna Crayton (bcrayton@gwu.edu) if you are interested in these opportunities or have any questions.     

Urgent Hold Information

Check your record via GWeb regarding holds prior to your scheduled registration time. Any hold on your account will prevent access to registration. You can view any holds on your account by looking at: Student Records & Registration Menu > Student Records Information Menu > View Administrative Holds.

Make sure to check now and again in the days lead up to registration. Check early, and check often! BADLY TIMED HOLDS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE. DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU:

Fall Registration Advising

All honors students are encouraged to see a Program Manager before registration. Make sure you are prepared with a tentative course schedule using the Spring 2020 Schedule of Classes and Honors course descriptions. As new course information and revisions become available, we will update the website. Please re-check the information on the Schedule of Classes and the Honors site before you register to ensure that you’re up-to-date!

Please use our wide selection of dates to your advantage – plan on meeting with an advisor at a time that is most practical given your registration date. Students may discuss registration (and remove an advising hold, if applicable) by one of the following options:

  1. Attend an advising party in the Honors Townhouse Club Room:
    Monday, November 11th from 4 -6pm (pizza!)
    Thursday, November 14th from 10am-12pm (bagels!)
    Friday, November 15th from 12:00-2:00pm (pizza!)
  2. Make an appointment with an advisor online at honorsprogram.gwu.edu/make-appointment.
