Honors Components: Several courses at PSC may be taken for Honors credit by adding an Honors component to the course. The Honors components are online-based components that students take in addition to their regular class. This means that you can register in any section of an Honors course—face-to-face or online—and the Honors portion of the course will be taught online via PSC’s eLearning platform, Canvas. This makes it possible to take Honors courses at times that best meet the demands of your schedule.
- Students should expect 12-15 additional hours of work and should be designed to enhance understanding of the course material.
- Students can only enroll in Honors components for the courses that they are currently taking.
- Students register for the regular portion of the course the same way they register for other courses, then must speak with the Honors Coordinator to enroll in the Honor component for the course, if it is offered that semester.
