Undergraduate Academic Standards and Honors Committee
The Undergraduate Academic Standards and Honors Committee (UASH) is responsible for awarding some academic honors (the Green, Froehlich, Housner and Undergraduate Senior Thesis prizes) and for consulting on other campus-wide honors. In addition, UASH ensures that a consistent set of standards and rules is applied in academic matters involving undergraduates.
UASH is composed of a chair and 8 professors elected by the Caltech faculty, 5 students (3 voting, 2 alternate) selected by the Academics and Research Committee (ARC), the Registrar, and the non-voting Undergraduate Deans. The current members of UASH are:
Faculty / Staff
Warren C. Brown, Chair
William M. (Bil) Clemons, Jr.
Christy Salinas *
The UASH Handbook for Students (PDF) provides students with information about how to prepare petitions for submission to UASH.
Forms to submit to UASH are available from the Deans' or Registrar's office or here in PDF format. If you download a form, you may complete it electronically (using the freely available Adobe Acrobat Reader), but must submit it to the registrar's office in person.
