Preparing the PNOI (Read Second):

Full Proposal Stage (Read Third):

PNOIs for undergraduate degree programs that have been approved to move to the full proposal stage will result in the completion of a 1503 form submitted to the APCC Canvas Discussion website.

Please work with your unit program coordinator to post and submit these materials on the APCC canvas site.

Proposing Honors Programs and Curriculum

If your school or program wishes to propose Major Honors and/or Major Integrated Honors pathways, APCC recommends consulting with the Institute for Global Engagement's Honors Executive Committee.
