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.
