Each department will confirm the names of students standing for honors in their department (a list of candidates  is provided by the Registrar's Office to each Department Chair). In select departments that offer an alternate path to departmental honors, the Chair (or Chair’s designee) will provide the names of each student being considered for departmental honors through any alternative path (for example, honors by examination).
