IVCC Honors Program - Program Details

Honors Program admission is competitive, but does not require a minimum high school GPA or ACT/SAT score; students who have prior college credit will have their cumulative GPA taken into consideration.

Applicants are judged primarily by their Honors Program Application Essay.  For more details about how to apply to the Honors Program, please see the  To Apply  page.

Once admitted to the program, students must maintain a satisfactory GPA and complete the following to successfully graduate with an Honors degree:

  • An Honors Orientation Course, preferably completed during their first semester in the program
  • Two Honors sections of IVCC courses (may be substituted with Honors Independent Project)
  • An Honors Portfolio course during their last semester at IVCC

 The below illustration shows what a typical two-year IVCC Honors Program student would experience as member of the program, though the program offers flexibility to allow for students to complete it in as few as two semesters, if necessary:
