The Honors Program requires students to complete a minimum of 13 credits of honors courses at DMACC.

Honors classes will be traditional face-to-face courses taken on DMACC campuses or at DMACC centers (concurrent enrollment classes in high schools may not be taken for honors credit). Online courses may be taken with permission from the Honors Advisory Council. Honors courses are those courses which have been previously approved by the Director of Honors. Honors courses include designated honors sections or standard sections with an individual honors-option contract signed by the honors professor and the student, which may include the following criteria:

  • Rigorous written assignments
  • Enhanced large- and small-group communication skills
  • Higher order reading and listening skills
  • Critical thinking

Satisfactorily complete two, 2-credit honors seminars
(included in the 13 credits)

HON 100—​Introduction to Honors (must complete during first semester in Honors)

HON 200—Honors Capstone (Prerequisite: HON100)​

Honors 2-credit seminars will be graded. A "B" or above will generate Honors credit on the student's transcript or grade report.
