The WNC Honors Program is designed to challenge students to achieve their highest academic potential. Students enrolled in any major are eligible to participate in the Honors Program.
WNC students with a 3.0 or higher cumulative grade point average or recent high school graduates with an exit GPA of 3.0 or higher are eligible to apply.
Students in the program earn honors credit for a course by undertaking special course projects in addition to the regular course requirements. Projects are completed on a contractual basis with individual faculty members.
To receive honors credit, the student must receive a grade of "B" or better for the course and complete the contracted project to the satisfaction of the course instructor. During the first week of classes, a student should talk to their instructors about participating in the Honors Program.
Honors Program participants who receive honors credit in 18 or more course units in at least six different academic disciplines and who have at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA at graduation are designated as Honors Graduates.
