Honors Program participation is accomplished through student involvement in self-designed projects done in conjunction with a course and the instructor, the Mentor. Successful completion of three Honors projects allows a student to become a "Graduate with Distinction."
Eligibility to participate includes being enrolled at MVCC for one semester with a GPA of 3.0 or better for 12 or more credit hours. Interested students should talk with a potential Mentor for a selected course. Based upon the Mentor's guidance, the student should fill out an Honors Proposal Form and submit it no later than the end of the second week of classes of the chosen semester. Upon approval, the project will be completed under the guidance of the Faculty Mentor. The student will then present the work at the end of the semester to the College community. A successful project, coupled with a B or better in the course to which the project is paired, will earn the student Honors credit. The Faculty Mentor will write a letter of commendation which will be available for the student for transfer and career placement.
The Coordinator of the Honors Program will arrange a number of cultural and academic events during the semester for which Honors students will be invited to attend.
For students whose native language is not English, there is English as a Second Language (ESL) programming offered by the Humanities Department. ESL Courses available include Structure and Grammar, Oral and Written Communication, ESL Writing Workshop, and Reading and Conversation. For further information on ESL programming, contact the Basic Skills Coordinator at (315) 792-5523.
