Honors at Everett - Stand Out!
What is the Honors Program?
The EvCC Honors Program has been designed to give our students an opportunity to stand out in their applications for transfer to 4-year schools and on their resumes, and to do Honors-level academic work while working toward their AAS degrees at EvCC.
- Gain an edge in transferring to the 4-year college or university of choice
- Stand out from the crowd when searching for a job
- Roll up their sleeves and experience what professionals in the field actually do
- Sharpen writing skills and build confidence
- Explore new depths, broaden horizons, and integrate knowledge
- Experience camaraderie with their peers and professors
All students interested in joining the Honors program must enroll for the Honors gateway classes, HUM 195 & HUM 196 (5 credits total). These courses will be offered again in Winter 2013.
Gateway courses must be completed with a B or better in order to enter the Honors program and begin work on Honors contracts and an Honors Capstone project. ENGL& 101 with a B or better is a prerequisite for enrollment in HUM 195 & HUM 196. Admission to the Honors program is not necessary for enrollment in Honors (HON) sections of classes.
The program started Fall Quarter, 2011.
Who is eligible?
ANY student can take the initiative and begin Honors work. All they need is a B or higher in English 101 to get started. Designated Honors sections of existing classes begin this fall.
The required gateway classes for entry into the Honors program begin this winter, 2012, and students completing the gateway classes may enter the program and begin turning other transfer-level courses into Honors classes by making Honors class contracts with faculty beginning in spring!
