The instructor needs to link the courses together. The UNH IT Knowledge Base has instructions.
For the most part, Honors courses are part of the Discovery Program, and require approval by the Discovery Committee. They usually have lower caps than general-level courses (usually 20-30 students). They hold students to higher expectation than ordinary courses, and should be conducted in a highly participatory way (e.g. discussions rather than lectures). For more information about forms of Honors Discovery courses, see this page: http://www.unh.edu/honors-program/honors-discovery
Honors courses may also be created at the upper level to serve Honors in Major students. This is relatively rare, as few majors have enough Honors students to fill a section. However, it may be feasible in cases where a single course serves multiple majors (such as GEN 604H, Principles of Genetics), or for general skills and topics (such as research methods or thesis prep).

Honors Liaisons recruit students for Honors in Major, offer guidance about curriculum, ensure that program information is available and up to date, certify Honors Designations, and certify completion of the program for graduating students. If you are an Honors Liaison, you have access to a Box folder that includes more information, as well as lists of Honors-eligible students. There is also a discussion forum for Liaisons in Canvas (in the Honors Faculty and Liaisons course).
The first is to be a member of the University Honors Program, which is invitation-only. To see how students are invited, and for information about nominating a student, visit: https://www.unh.edu/honors-program/admissions. Generally, students begin the University Honors Program in their first year. Once they have completed most of their Discovery requirements, they are more likely to complete Departmental Honors.
Students generally begin Departmental Honors in the Junior year. Unlike University Honors, there is no invitation required. The requirements and processes to join vary by major. Students should contact their major's Honors Liaison to discuss joining Honors in Major.
