Students may enter the honors program directly out of high school, or as an already-established college student. You may qualify for the program in one of several ways:

  • If you have a 3.5 High school GPA (on a 4.0 scale) or...
  • If you have graduated from the top 20% of your high school class or...
  • If you have a 3.5 college GPA after 12 credits (in transfer courses only) or...
  • If you get a recommendation from someone familiar with your academic abilities and have an interview with the coordinator of the honors program.

All students must complete an application for the honors program, and must meet NCC placement requirements for English I.
