A Unique Opportunity
The Camden County College Honors Program is an exciting college-wide program that is open to students pursuing an Associate Degree in any major. The program includes Honors sections of general education courses that are already required of all AA, AS, AFA and AAS degrees.
In order to complete the Honors Program before graduation from CCC, students are required to take four of their general education courses in designated Honors sections, maintain an overall grad point average of 3.5 and participate in a total of three community service or cultural events.
The Honors courses are small, seminar-style classes which allow for extensive student/faculty collaboration, and they have interesting themes and projects that are different from the usual introductory classes.
The Student Experience
As an Honors student, you will be part of a supportive but rigorous academic community, and there will be special social and academic events just for your group. We have taken recent trips to New York City and Washington D.C., and we have a lounge/study area just for the Honors Program. There are also several scholarships that have been created exclusively for Honors Program Students, and we have admission agreements with Honors Programs at local universities. All of this will help you to make the most of your experience at CCC and to be better prepared for the process of transfer to a four-year college or university, be it in New Jersey or elsewhere around the world.
Students who have been successful in a college preparatory high school curriculum and who have scored well enough on the SAT or Accuplacer exams can be accepted into the Honors program directly out of high school. Students already enrolled at CCC in any associate degree program will be invited to apply as long as they have completed at least 12 college credits and have earned an overall grade point average of 3.5 or higher.
