Overview of the MCC Honors Program


MCC Honors Program

The Honors Program rewards academic achievement with a partial-tuition scholarship and special recognition such as the Honors Program Diploma and Medallion at graduation. Honors Program students are also offered opportunities for academic, social and cultural enrichment.

Honors Program Partial-Tuition Scholarship

Once you have been accepted into the Honors Program, you are then eligible for the Honors Program Partial Tuition Scholarship if you are enrolled in honors courses. This is an academic merit scholarship that does not require proof of financial need. Due to limited funding, however, scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. See the Honors Program Coordinator for restrictions and current award amounts.
