Honors College Academic Progress Plan (HCAPP)

The Honors College Academic Progress Plan (HCAPP) is designed to:

  • Inform advisors of your plans so they can provide better guidance and support
  • Formally document the ways in which Honors College members plan to use department courses to satisfy University Integrative Studies requirements in their degree program

The University Integrative Studies substitution form

Substitution courses must be proposed to and approved by an Honors College Advisor in advance, typically immediately after enrollment.  Please use this form to propose your substitution. Contact your Honors College advisor with any questions.

Please note, when requesting a course to substitute for an Integrative Studies requirement, remember that:

  • Courses must be approved in advance in order to fulfill University Integrative Studies requirements
  • Course substitution approvals are valid only for the semester indicated
