As you may know, the Campuswide Honors Collegium requires students to enroll in all of their CHC classes for a letter grade and to enroll in 12 or more graded units each quarter.
Although these requirements were temporarily lifted effective Spring Quarter 2020 ONLY, these requirements are back in effect beginning Fall 2020 as follows:
Beginning Fall 2020, all CHC students are once again required to enroll in all of their required CHC classes for a letter grade.
For Fall 2020 ONLY, the requirement that CHC students be enrolled in 12 or more graded units will be relaxed. CHC students may take as few as 8 graded units as long as they are enrolled in 12 or more total units. [Note: Courses taken Pass/Not Pass (P/NP) do NOT count as graded units.]
Students wishing to take fewer than 12 total units or fewer than 8 graded units will need to submit a CHC petition to justify their request. Petitions are considered on a case-by-case basis and are not guaranteed to be approved. Please see http://honors.uci.edu/academics/petitions-for-exceptions/.
The CHC staff is here to help you make a plan for your success. If you have any questions or concerns about your fall courses or think you merit an exception to this or any CHC requirements, please reach out to us via email@example.com.
Please note that students who are repeating classes that they originally took for a letter grade (and did not pass) must repeat those classes for a letter grade (according to the UCI General Catalogue). This includes CHC classes – students repeating any CHC classes in Fall 2020 that they originally took for a letter grade in the past must also complete them for a letter grade if repeating in Fall 2020.
Students should consult with their school honors advisor about the decision to take any major classes and/or requirements Pass/Not Pass and if they would like information about part-time study, etc.
