Honors for A's: CSAD Courses

Electives (Beginning Fall 2017): For Students Entering WVU Fall 2016 or Earlier

Upper Division Courses
Certain upper division courses have been designated by their departments as eligible for Honors credit when students earn an A in those courses. 

Commonly known as “Honors-for-A’s” courses, they are eligible for this credit only for students enrolling at WVU in the Honors College in Fall 2016 or earlier. A list of eligible courses can be found in Appendix II, p. 35, of the WVU Honors College Current Student Handbook.  

SPA students who enrolled in the Honors College in fall 2016 or earlier may count these courses as Honors courses if they received As.  They may have had the SPA instead of CSAD prefix (e.g., SPA 322).
  • CSAD 322/SPA 322 Phonetics 
  • CSAD 326/SPA 326 Articulation and Cleft Palate 
  • CSAD 440/SPA 440 Audiological Assessment
