For LCCC students who would like to concentrate more seriously on academics, who are intellectually curious and highly motivated, the Honors Scholars program provides an academic focus that creates a strong foundation for further learning. Honors coursework challenges students to expand their intellectual, cultural and social horizons, and to become lifelong learners. The program is ideal for students who are willing to challenge their views, discuss their ideas and explore diverse perspectives.
The Honors Scholars program welcomes a limited number of qualified, full-time, first-year students who plan to gradate from LCCC and transfer to a four-year college or university.
