The Honors Program provides a series of enriched courses for students who want to
enhance their education. Developed to attract academically gifted students to the
College, any student, regardless of their major, can participate.
The Honors Program offers a series of enriched courses. Our courses include enhancements
that provide students the opportunity to learn at a higher level than non-Honors courses. Honors
courses provide more time for class discussions and the sharing of ideas, more abstract
thinking, and exposure to material that will better prepare students for the challenges
of upper-level college work. In essence, Honors courses are more interesting. All
of the students in an Honors class are bright, academic achievers who are highly motivated,
making the classroom atmosphere is more conducive to learning.
Students graduating from high school with at least a 90 GPA and mastery level achievement
on multiple Regents Examinations will be invited to apply for admission to the Program.
From within NCC:
NCC students who achieve a 3.5 GPA will be invited to apply for admission to the Program. The admissions decision is based on the whole student. Students who
are close to the admissions requirements are encouraged to submit an admissions application.
