Welcome to the Honors Program

Honor Students

Honors Program

  The Mt. SAC Honors Program began in 1994 in order to meet the needs of motivated students with a strong academic record. Our program offers honors sections of transferable general education courses. These courses provide an enriched curriculum, seminar-type classes, close interaction with honors program faculty, and special projects and activities. Honors courses strengthen students’ college transcripts and increase their chances for transfer to four-year institutions.


FAST TRACK INTO THE HONORS PROGRAM - We are offering a Pre-Honors English 68 class this summer, Mon-Thu from 4:10pm-6:40pm.  Completion of this class with an A or B grade allows the student to begin taking honors classes this Fall.  Application for this opportunity available at:  http://surveytest.mtsac.edu/cgi-bin/rws5.pl?FORM=HonorsApp
