Geared toward motivated and intellectually gifted students who want more out of their education, the NWACC Honors Program offers a curriculum of small, challenging classes, sponsors special events, provides experiential learning activities and travel opportunities. Honors Program students form cohort groups as they take classes, study, and work side by side on class and service projects. Program members have access to a study lounge on the first floor of Burns Hall and are eligible to apply for annual, member-only scholarships. Honors Program students become some of the most engaged, connected, and successful students on campus;  they are future nurses and history professors, scientists and English teachers, PhD's and business leaders.

Join the NWACC Honors Program and prepare to  ENGAGE. COMMIT. TRANSFORM.
