Student Application Form - 2013-2014 application is now closed

This electronic form is to be used by student applying for admission to the Honors Forum. Each application must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a Skidmore faculty member. Faculty recommending students to the Forum should use the recommendation form.


Pre-registration Form

As you may have noted in the Honors Forum flyers sent out with other Registration materials, Honors Forum members have the opportunity to pre-register for a space in an Honors course prior to regular Registration. Preregistration will guarantee you a space in one Honors Forum course only.


Independent Study

There are two options available for those students wishing to undertake an independent study. The first, HF271/272, is designed for first-year and sophomore students whereas HF 371/372 is designed for juniors and seniors. Each course is an independent research or project opportunity for a well-qualified student working at honors level. In consultation with a sponsoring faculty member, the student proposes to the Honors Council a project that builds upon the student’s academic background and interests and concludes in an honors paper or project to be shared with the wider student community. The Honors Independent Study may not be substituted for available honors courses.


Honors Forum Course Funds Request

(HTML format)

The Skidmore College Honors Forum has a modest budget to support and co-sponsor activities, events and projects (typically in the range of $50-$200, occasionally above $200) that contribute to the intellectual quality of life on campus. Examples of programs include academic events such as special lectures, debates, research presentations, symposia, as well as cultural and social activities that bring honors forum members together with other students. Programs for which funding is sought should serve to foster academic and social connections among students and enhance intellectual discourse beyond the formal classroom. The Honors Forum expects that all co-curricular programs that it supports will promote the mission and goals of the Forum to its members and/or the College community at-large.

Proposal for Senior Capstone Requirement

Each graduating member of the Honors Forum must complete an honors capstone project during the senior year. In most cases the capstone will be a substantial, culminating project (thesis, research report, performance, exhibit, etc.) defined by the student's major department(s). In some cases, however, the capstone for the Honors Forum might be a paper or project of especially sophisticated design to be completed within one of the student's "traditional" 300-level courses.


Withdrawal Form

Students may use this form to indicate a temporary or permanent cessation in their Honors Forum membership.
