What to know about registering for your thesis course

  • Every Honors student* is required to register for your 'Thesis Course'. This is a course with a catalog #of 499, and the subject prefix will be in your major. So if you are doing a thesis in psychology, your course will be 'PSY 499'.
  • You may register for 1 - 3 credits, and you can specify that when you fill out the form.
  • Your faculty advisor is the grader for your course, and you must receive a B or higher to be certified to graduate with Crown Honors.

Special for Distinction Program Students:

  • If you are completing an Arts & Sciences departmental Distinction program, you do not register for 499.  Honors will use the grade from your distinction course as your thesis grade requirement. So, if you are in a distinction program you can skip this process altogether.
  • International Relations Distinction Students: You actually do register for 499.
  • Refer to our 'Distinction Page' for more information
