Honors sections and seminars of regular courses offered through the MCC’s Honors Institute are available to all eligible students in all programs throughout the College. Honors Studies provide educational experiences for students with outstanding ability. They bring curious, highly motivated students together in small classes. Many honors courses are taught by MCC Distinguished Professors or faculty members who have received the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Eligibility to enroll in an honors course is based on one or more of the following:

  • New Students - In general, high school students should have an 87 or better GPA and/or be in the top 10-15% of their class. In addition, strong AP, SAT, or ACT exam scores are helpful
  • Continuing Students - Completion of at least 12 credit hours at MCC with a cumulative average of 3.5 or higher.

If you meet neither criterion, but are still interested in Honors opportunities, please contact the Honors Institute office at 292-3351.
