  • The Nursing major is compatible only with Innovations. Majors that are credit-intensive with required courses in the first year, such as science majors, fit best with the Innovations track.
  • The Biology major is an exception and is designed to fit specifically with either Intellectual Traditions or the Society, Policy, Citizenship track.
  • At this time, engineering students cannot be admitted to the University Honors Programs because of class schedule conflicts.
  • Matteo Ricci students are ineligible for the University Honors Program because its program of study has a separate curriculum.
