Honors Program

Honors Program Overview

Whether you are looking for more depth in a subject that interests you or a greater connection among the subjects you take, you should consider the TCC Honors Distinction Pathway.

A Distinction Pathway is a series of courses that lead up to a note of completion on your transcript and that help you choose your required courses in a way that goes together. Distinction Pathways--like Honors, Sustainability, or American Ethnic and Gender Studies--provide you with enhanced skills and knowledge that can help you in your transfer applications or future course work.

With the Honors Distinction Pathway, you can:

  • Enhance your educational experience
  • Access globally-focused curriculum
  • Integrate concepts, skills, and knowledge from multiple subject areas
  • Interact with teachers and students in smaller classes
  • Add Honors to your transcript for all sections
  • Pay no fees or extra costs
