Some courses have optional honors assignments you can complete for special recognition in the course.
- Are not required to get a Course Certificate
- Do not affect your grade in the course
- Include extra content related to the course
- Are not included in every course
If you complete all honors assignments in a course, your Course Certificate will include a special Honors Recognition. If you don't get a Course Certificate, your Accomplishments page will show that you completed a course with Honors.
To get an Honors Recognition, you need to:
- Pay for a Course Certificate in that course
- Earn a Course Certificate by completing and passing all required assignments
- Complete and pass all honors assignments
