Honors Program Application (2019-2020)

General Honors Program Information

Thank you for your interest in the Honors Program at Grand Rapids Community College.  We are now accepting applications for those students interested in starting the Honors Program next academic year, beginning Fall 2019


Depending on your student status (incoming or current student), you will be required to attend our Honors Only New Student Orientation or a meeting with the Director.


If you are an incoming student, you must first apply to the College before you can be admitted into the Honors Program.


The Honors Program only admits (50) students each academic year.  Students not admitted will be added to our wait list.


Students applying to the Honors Program are committing to the following:

  1. Complete both Honors 101 and Honors Capstone courses (totaling 3 credits) with a "B" or better
  2. Complete Honors Projects (totaling 12 credits)
  3. Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.3 at the time of program completion

Program completion is noted on your official college transcripts.

Note: Honors 101 and Honors Capstone courses are only offered in a face-to-face format and at the Grand Rapids Main Campus location.
