Yes!

I've noticed that some courses have changed from one group to another. What does that mean for students?

Our policy is to honor the course as it was categorized when the student took it. If, for example, a student took ARTH 153 in Spring 2010 as a Group B course, we will honor that as a Group B. However, since the course became a Group A course in Fall 2010, any student who takes it in Fall 2010 (or later) may use it only as a Group A. Similarly, the student who took the course in Spring 2010 while the course was a Group B course cannot now elect use the course as a Group A.

Sometimes a course is given one-time-only approval to satisfy a certain breadth requirement when taught in a certain semester or as part of a study abroad program.

Honors Colloquia - On the UHP page, please see the Honors Course Book for information about which sections are approved for which breadth requirements
