Honors Program Qualifications

Interested students may apply to the Honors Program before the start of each fall or spring semester. Applications are available through the Registrar, Phi Theta Kappa, and advisors. In order to apply, a student must meet one of the following criteria:

  • A GPA of 3.5 (90) or higher from an accredited high school
  • An SAT score of 1170 or higher (or comparable ACT score)
  • Top 10 percent standing in graduating class at an accredited high school
  • A GPA of 3.5 or higher with a minimum of 12 credits earned at MVCC or another college

If a student maintains a 3.25 GPA at MVCC, he or she need only apply to the Honors Program once.
