Honors Eligibility and Application

Applications for Honors Accepted Now

To be eligible for the Honors Program, students must be enrolled in an Associates Degree program by the time they begin Honors studies. They must have completed all pre-college/developmental course work in Math and English.

High school seniors: High school seniors can apply while still in their senior year of high school. Acceptance into the program is contingent upon the GPA at the time of completion.

Current students: Current students who wish to be considered for acceptance into Honors should have completed at least 12 hours in their degree program by the time they begin Honors studies. If, at the time of application, those courses are still in progress, acceptance into the program is contingent upon the GPA at the time of completion.

New students: New students who earned their high school diploma or GED more than two years ago fall under the policy for current students.

CCP students: We will consider applications from CCP students with an unweighted high school GPA of 3.25 or higher or an RCC GPA of 3.25 or higher.

Early College students: We will consider applications from Early College students to begin Honors in the Spring of their Junior year. Most Early College Honors students participate in their last 2 years at RCC.

GPA requirements: The minimum GPA requirement is 3.25 for new as well as current students. For new students, we look at the cumulative unweighted high school GPA. For current students, we look at the cumulative GPA of their curriculum courses.

To apply: E-mail Honors@robeson.edu for access to the Honors page on Blackboard Open LMS.  Once you have access, please review the Honors Student Handbook and upload your student eval or high school transcript.  There will be an Honors Quiz which will include a brief essay.  Materials will be reviewed monthly for acceptance into the program.

You are welcome to contact honors@robeson.edu with any questions.
