Honors Option 
Any student may enroll into a course labeled “Honors Option”; however, these courses are also designed for those students who are involved with the Honors Program at NOVA.  Any honors student who is interested in an honors option course should consult with the instructor within the first two weeks of the semester for guidelines about the honors option, including assignments and enrichment activities.  Honors credit will be given to those who complete the “honors option” for designated courses, and credits for these honors option courses may count towards completion of the Honors Program at NOVA. Please contact one of the honors faculty listed above or the counseling office if you have questions.
