As an EMCC Honors Student, you'll learn from highly qualified faculty in small, dynamic classes. You'll receive the highest level of personalized guidance and student support. And you'll acquire a first-rate education in an ideal learning environment - all at a very affordable tuition rate.
The EMCC Honors Program is dedicated to helping you reach your highest potential. We offer a rigorous multi-disciplinary curriculum that emphasizes active, small-group learning supported by related extra-curricular activities.
There are two ways to receive money as a member of the Honors Program: The Presidents' Scholarship and the Honors Achievement Award Scholarship. Any student receiving money from either scholarship is required to take a minimum of one – three credit Honors Only Cohort class or to complete an Honors Project in any class over the 100 level that is a minimum of 3 credits. Recent graduates from NCA-accredited high schools in Maricopa County are eligible to apply for the Presidents' Scholarship, provided they rank in the top 20% of their graduating classes in the 6th, 7th or 8th semester and enroll in the academic year following high school graduation without having enrolled in any institution other than a Maricopa Community College.
Continuing and transfer students may apply for the Honors Achievement Award Scholarship after having accumulated a minimum of 12 credits over the 100 level with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25.
