Eligibility for the Honors Program
All students with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and 12 credits completed at NHCC might receive an invitation to join the Honors Program. Students will be asked to attend an introductory orientation session and then pledge to the program. Upon pledging, students will be added to the Honors Program D2L Bightspace page where they will find detailed information on how to successfully complete the program. Once you have pledged and been added to the D2L Bightspace page, you will meet with the Honors Director to map out your program.
To be certified as an Honors Program transfer student or graduate, a student must have successfully completed the requirements of the Honors Program with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5. Students will then have Honors listed in their transcript and be recognized at commencement.
