We can’t wait to see what you’ll accomplish.

You want to stand out from your peers. You love learning. You strive to flourish and to excel in everything you do. At SCC, we value this kind of spirit, and we want to help it pay off.

The SCC Honors Program presents an opportunity to explore unique course topics and deepen your understanding of the subjects that interest you. Through the Honors Program, you’ll hone your skills as a student and develop long-lasting relationships with other motivated students.

Honors Program benefits:

  • Mentorship and academic guidance from an Honors Council member.
  • Invitations to special events throughout the semester.
