HONORS PROGRAM

 

The Honors Program at Bronx Community College offers academically enriching and enhanced experiences to highly motivated and qualified students. Students can take designated honors courses, honors contracts in regular courses and enroll in the Honors Scholars Program.

 

Honors Courses: Students can enroll in a designated honors course. Honors courses are for self-motivated students who are interested in challenging themselves academically. These courses are highly interactive and emphasize critical thinking and strong writing skills. To qualify, a 3.0 or higher GPA and a minimum of nine college credits is required for current students; incoming freshmen who meet specific criteria are also eligible. For students to receive an honors course notation on their transcript, the honors course must be completed with a B+ or higher.

 

Honors Contracts: Students enrolled in a non-honors course may opt for an honors contract in many of
the courses offered at BCC. Upon approval from the instructor, students will enter into an honors contract that enables them to earn honors credit in a non-honors course. The contract is online at the Honors Program web page on the BCC website. The honors contract is an agreement between the student and the instructor that specifies the honors level objectives and tasks to be completed by the student in addition to those of the normal class. To qualify, a 3.0 or higher GPA and a minimum of nine college credits is required for current students; incoming freshmen who meet specific criteria are also eligible. For students to receive an honors course notation on their transcript, the course associated with the honors contract must be completed with a B+ or higher.

 

Honors Scholars Program: Students who have earned a 3.2 or higher GPA qualify to apply to the Honors Scholars Program
at Bronx Community College. Students in the Honors Scholars Program must have completed four or more honors courses or honors contracts with a grade of B+ or higher, complete a community engagement project and meet other program requirements. Interested students can apply to the Honors Scholars Program at the start of the fall or spring semesters.
