Keep an eye on your registration!
The Collin College Honors Institute strives to offer our students a wide variety of courses each semester. Honors Students (with a 3,5 GPA or higher) are among the first allowed to register for classes each semester which is convenient considering honors courses tend to fill up quickly since they are smaller than a regular course (15-18 students). From time to time an honors course may not "make"; like any other course, it may be cancelled altogether or converted to a regular course. Please keep an eye on your registration during the two to three weeks prior to the start of each semester. You will be able to see if a course has been converted or cancelled and plan your schedule accordingly. Unfortunately, it is impossible for the Honors Institute to contact every student for various changes in the schedule.However, cancellation and conversion of honors courses is extremely rare.
