Honors Program Requirements

Honors classes, as well as eligibility to develop an honors project in a regular class, are reserved for students who have demonstrated a high level of achievement at ACC or in high school. Students must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • A GPA of at least 3.25 with at least 12 hours
  • An ACT score of at least 26
  • An SAT score of at least 1100
  • Graduation in the top 20% of your high school class
  • Approval by the class instructor

If you wish to develop an honors project in a non-honors class, approach your instructor within the first week of class. Together you will determine the appropriate project and enter into a contract stipulating what is expected of each of you.
