STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD! TAKE AN HONORS CLASS!

If you have a GPA of 3.5 or higher, have 12 or more college credits AND have completed all developmental coursework, you may qualify to take an Honors course at MCC! (Note: Students with a GPA of 3.25-3.49 may be eligible to take a single Honors course with a professor's recommendation)

There are MANY advantages to taking Honors courses and NO additional risk. Honors courses do not involve more work nor are they graded any differently. Honors courses encourage a higher level of learning, stand out on your transcript, transfer just as well as non-Honors courses and enhance chances for admission into the 4-year schools. Additionally, students earn grades in Honors courses comparable to those they earn in non-Honors courses. There are also many extra features, such as an exclusive Honors Student study lounge, field trips, guest speakers and social events all at NO EXTRA COST! Students may also complete one of several Honors Options upon admission into the Honors Program.
