The format used for indicating the course categorization required by the rule for eligibility for Latin Honors is minimal and plainly visible. Each one of the "seven major fields of knowledge" listed on pages 7-8 of the Smith College Catalogue is identified by the single letter of the alphabet with which the name of that field begins. Multiple identifiers are separated by a backslash and are indicated in sequential order as shown on pp. 7-8, imputing no greater or lesser importance to any single identifying category. Note the mention of the writing requirement in the last paragraph on the attached sheet. Writing intensive courses are designated with the letters WI in bold face type immediately following the Latin Honor(s) designation(s).

Please indicate in red the appropriate Latin Honors identifier(s) for each course or topic in your department or program which does not already show a Latin Honors category or categories, including courses reactivated from the "Hold" list. New topics for seminars and colloquia must also be categorized the same way. Courses which the department and/or instructor has determined should remain uncategorized should be so noted on the copy. Special studies and Honors Theses should not show an identifier as they will be categorized individually according to their content. Cross-listed courses carry the identifier(s) assigned by the home department/program.
