Students with strong academic motivation and ability are
offered special class sections taught by faculty selected
for their special interest in working with honors students.
To learn more about the Honors Institute, please visit our web site.
Highest Honors are awarded to graduating students who
receive grade-point average of 4.0 in all community college
work. High Honors are awarded to those with grade-point
average of 3.5 or above in all community college work, and Honors
are awarded to those whose grade-point average is between 3.3 and 3.5.
A student taking 12 or more units per quarter will be placed on the Dean's List if his quarter grade-point average is 3.5 (a "B+" average) or better. A part-time student who has acquired a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or more in at least 12 units and who has earned a 3.5 grade-point average in the last quarter's units is also eligible for the Dean's List.
In addition, students may sign up for the Honors Institute program. Among the features of the Honors Institute program are special courses that prepare students for transfer to top colleges and universities, discussions and projects that stimulate intellectual development, free tickets to cultural events, seminars, and a transcript notation of "Honors Scholar" for students completing seven of the designated honors courses with an A or B.
