Honors Program

Group of Honor Students

The Honors Program is an adventure! It is a fun and exciting intellectual journey that challenges students to be creative, curious and reflective. You will extend your knowledge, exercise your mind, further your talents, and open up to new ideas. Honors students take on leadership roles, and are part of a team of motivated learners. They work closely with each other and their instructors to explore and research a variety of subjects and special topics in unique ways. There are multiple opportunities to make connections and receive mentoring from distinguished staff and faculty. Those who complete the Program are most likely to stand out and make a positive difference in their higher education.

The Honors Program aims to:

•  provide novel learning experiences for high achieving students who are committed to excellence;

•  promote critical reading, writing and thinking as necessary tools for continued academic success; and

•  prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions.



Note: You are encouraged to regularly check this website and the MyVCCCD portal for updates and alerts.
