New Honors Program Raises Standard

by Press Release | Aug 25, 2008
New Honors Program Raises Standard Camden County College has added a new component to help fulfill its mission of preparing students for career or transfer: a collegewide Honors Program.

Beginning this fall, students in any associate’s degree program who have completed 12 credits with an overall grade-point average of 3.5 or higher may apply. New Jersey Student Tuition Assistance Reward Scholarship Program students may apply directly out of high school if they meet certain criteria.

To complete the Honors Program, students must take four general education courses in designated Honors sections. They also must participate in at least three community service projects.

Honors courses will be small, seminar-style classes. Participating students will belong to a supportive but rigorous academic community, which will enrich their CCC experience without requiring them to take classes above or beyond their usual degree requirements.

“Faculty members will work closely with Honors students, and the classes will be ‘deeper’ and more thought-provoking,” said Professor Jennifer Hoheisel, Honors Program director. “The challenge and camaraderie of Honors classes will better prepare students to meet the demands of the junior- and senior-level classes they will take upon transfer to their four-year colleges and universities.”

Other advantages for Honors students will be special academic advisement sessions and the designation of Honors courses on their transcripts. They also will be invited to participate in cultural and social activities that will enhance their admission and scholarship applications for their transfer institutions.
