Overview of the MCC Honors College
MCC Honors College
The Honors College rewards academic achievement with a partial-tuition scholarship and special recognition such as the Honors College Diploma and Medallion at graduation. Honors College students are also offered opportunities for academic, social and cultural enrichment.
Honors College Partial-Tuition Scholarship
Once you have been accepted into the Honors College, you are then eligible for the Honors College 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.
