designed for high-achieving students seeking to improve their college
transcripts and transferability with challenging coursework provided across all
disciplines. Students will be required to employ critical thinking skills to
complete expanded research projects and participate in Honors-related
activities and events aimed towards developing leadership. Honors students
enjoy the freedom to work independently and collaboratively with faculty who encourage
lively, engaging discourse and challenging activities inside and outside the
Honors credit is earned through various Honors sections. Honors credit is also
earned through contracts in classes with a coordinator who is committed
to an open-ended approach to learning. Students are encouraged to contribute
extensively and creatively through small group interaction, seminars,
laboratories, oral reports, special research projects, informal discussion, and
both individual and group projects.

in it for me?
- Honors Program Graduate
- If students successfully
complete 15 hours of Honors contract credit with a GPA of 3.5 or better,
they earn the designation "Honors Program Graduate" on their
diploma and transcript. Honors Program graduates receive special
recognition at graduation and a medallion commemorating the event.
In addition, the Honors Council works with senior institutions so that
Honors Program Graduates may matriculate directly into the senior
institution's Honors program which may offer students such benefits such
as early registration, special housing, and scholarships.
- For the Business/Technology Student
- Being an Honors Program
student also benefits the technical student. Prospective employers look
more carefully at and give extra consideration and time to job applicants
with Honors designations on their transcript. This indicates to them a
student who is willing to accept a challenge, set goals and follow
through on projects.
- You are invited to take a look
at our Calendar of Events and our newsletter The Honors Scholar to find
out what is going on with the program and with the Honors Student
Organization. All the activities sponsored by any of these will be
promptly posted here.
- Student Evaluations
- Students are asked to give
feedback on the Honors program each semester. At the end of the semester
students are asked to evaluate both the Honors mentor and the Honors
Program in writing. These evaluations are the source of student feedback
that helps shape the future of the Honors Program.
