If you are a high achieving student, the Honors Program may be for you.

"This program allows student to enhance their academic experience," said Honors Program Manager Jacque Clinton.

The Honors Program allows you to turn your college-level classes into Honors courses through the completion of advanced projects such as rigorous research papers.

Joining this program provides students the opportunity to sharpen their leadership skills and academic prowess.

Students can opt into the program by taking classes such as Honors Seminar (a personal marketing class) and Honors Colloquy (a speaker series with different themes).

In order to graduate as an Honors Scholar students must maintain a 3.5 GPA and participate in two Honors poster sessions along with completing required classes. 

Upon completion of the Honors Program students who participate are eligible for scholarships opportunities during their final quarter at Highline.

Each year approximately 250 students take part in this program by completing at least one honors project or class. 

On March 17 in Building 8 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. the Honors program will be hosting a Poster Session that allows current Honors student to share their projects with the campus. This poster session is open to the entire everyone.

"The Highline Honors Scholar Program is for motivated, academically successful students looking to be better prepared for transfer and career success," said Clinton.
