Courses, Academic Support, and Grades
Click HERE to view the courses available to the 2013 Honors Academy participants.
You will participate in regularly-scheduled study sessions supervised by University student mentors, and you will have access to Academic Advancement Center tutors in specific subject areas, if needed. If you are having any difficulties whatsoever with your courses, we encourage you to visit the Summer Sessions office for advising. In addition:
Grades and Transcripts
- We offer a seminar on the college application process led by Ohio University Admissions staff. They will share inside information on the admission process and will show you how to avoid the application jitters, survive interviews, and write essays that will interest admissions committees. They’ll answer all the questions you have about getting into the college or university of your choice.
- Tour Career Services and try out their computerized guidance system which helps you identify which majors and career field fit your personality, interests, abilities, and values.
- Attend a seminar on opportunities for student research and creative activity, featuring examples of a fascinating array of projects completed by Ohio University students.
- Talk with the assistant dean of Ohio University’s Honors Tutorial College—a unique program based on the Oxford University (England) tutorial model.
After the Honors Academy is over, a notice will be sent to your University email address saying your grades are available. Your grades and the number of credit hours earned will be recorded on your permanent Ohio University academic record, and they will be listed on any official transcript you request from the University. (Remember: The Exploration Seminars are noncredit experiences.) Course credit can be applied toward an undergraduate degree at Ohio University or another university, and your Ohio University grade point average may be considered as a part of your application to this or any other school. Be sure to check with the colleges or universities to which you later apply to determine how the credit you gain through this program would count toward your graduation requirements.
