480-461-7079 | www.mesacc.edu/honors
The Honors Program at Mesa Community College offers a unique and challenging educational opportunity for our high achieving students. Over 20 Honors-only courses are offered each semester along with the possibility of completing contracts for honors credit in other courses. MCC’s Honors Program provides an opportunity for our students to participate in a challenging environ- ment with small classes, one-on-one mentoring from faculty, and increased interaction with other honors students.
The Honors Program provides funds to help defray the costs of attending college. The Presidents’ Honors Scholarship currently provides funds to cover up to 15 credit hours of tuition per semester to the top 20% of the graduating class from any accredited Maricopa County high school, for up to four consecutive semesters. This is an opportunity for recent high school graduates to make a commitment to their community and their own future. Continuing students can earn entry into the MCC Honors Program and be awarded the Honors Achievement Award with a cumulative districtwide 3.25 GPA and a minimum of 12 credit hours of 100+ classes.
