If you were recently admitted to the Honors College as a continuing or transfer students (meaning you did not enter the HC straight from high school), you may be interested in taking HONR 200 instead of UNIV 200. Upperclassmen who have completed UNIV 111 and UNIV 112 are encouraged to take the HONR 200 section offered this summer to start earning honors credit. This section of the class is taught partially online and is open to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
Upperclassmen may also request to be placed in the Fall 2014 section of HONR 200 but must contact Ms. Homer to make this request. HONR 200 is required of all incoming freshmen so the Honors College must get the Fall 2014 freshmen registered first. After the freshmen are registered, Ms. Homer will register those upperclassmen who have requested a seat, based on space available. If you would like to be placed on the waitlist for a Fall 2014 section of HONR 200, please email Ms. Homer (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your V-Number and your first and second choice of CRNs. Students making this request are advised to register for a section of UNIV 200 in the meantime, which can later be dropped once a seat in HONR 200 is secured.
Please contact your honors advisor with questions.

The Graduate School is pleased to announce a call for application to the 2014-2015 Graduate School Mentorship Program (GSMP).

In order to qualify, graduate students must be at least second-year and be in good academic standing. Interested graduate students should access the application via the GSMP website: http://www.graduate.vcu.edu/programs/mentor.html Mentor applicants are required to attend an interview, and will sign up for the interview session of choice on the application form.
