Maricopa Emergency Management System Alert

  COVID-19 UPDATE:  All student enrollment and support services are available online only – connect with SCC here. Most Spring 2021 Semester classes are being held online.

Honors Program

Priority deadline dates for early consideration are 7/20 and 12/20

The Scottsdale Community College Honors Program fosters critical thinking and academic excellence among students who are motivated to pursue academic enrichment. The program offers specially designated honors classes, monthly Honors Forum speakers, and various other events throughout the year.

The Honors Program is open to recent high school graduates, returning college students, and continuing students who meet certain academic criteria. Students in good standing in the Honors Program receive substantial scholarships or tuition waivers and have the opportunity to apply for several additional Honors-Only Maricopa District scholarships.

It is the hope of the Honors Directors and the Honors Advisory Committee that the academic year will be one of exploration, learning, and community for all members of the Honors Program.

Honors Orientation

All new Honor Students must attend a mandatory Honors Orientation—this is in addition to the New Student Orientation. Honors Orientations will be held in LC 369 unless otherwise noted.

Important Notes:

  • A student must be admitted to the Honors Program BEFORE registering for and attending Honors Orientation.
  • A student admitted to the Honors Program will receive an e-mail with instructions in relation to the orientation and registering for an honors course.

PLEASE NOTE: Honors Orientation is not the New Student Orientation. New Students are automatically enrolled.
