Honors Program

You are invited to enroll in DCC’s Honors Program.

“Honors Scholar” designation on your diploma and transcript gives you enhanced résumé credentials to include in your university transfer applications and job search documents.

Most DCC courses are eligible; ask your professor.

What is it?

DCC Honors Program allows students to complete an Honors project and earn Honors credit in DCC courses. Each course completed for Honors credit will be noted on your transcript. When you compete 12-credits or more of Honors coursework with a B or better along and an overall GPA of 3.0 or better you will be noted as an “Honors Scholar.” The Honors Scholar designation will be reflected on all of your academic records and diploma.

Am I eligible?

You are eligible to enroll in a course for honors credit if you have completed 12 credits of coursework at DCC with a 3.2 GPA.
