Honors compacts will include established requirements (such as written memos, summaries, reports and extra-curricular assignments). These requirements are in addition to the regular coursework and must be completed to earn honors credit. However, failure to complete the honors compact does not affect the course grade.
The honors compacts are designed to develop skills that are important in graduate studies and the accounting profession. In the first semester, the compact requirements will be directed toward professional development and awareness. In subsequent semesters, compact requirements will require synthesis, analysis, and application of relevant accounting literature and standards.
There will be honors compacts for a total of eight upper-level ACG and TAX courses. In both restricted and unrestricted courses, students will have their honors compacts supervised and approved by the professor teaching the restricted cohort section.
