The purpose of the Honors Program is to provide a greater challenge and a richer experience for able and highly motivated students at Northeast State.
The Honors Program is open to first-time, transfer, and returning students. Admittance to the Honors Program as a first-semester freshman requires an ACT composite score of 25 or an SAT combined score of 1140. Students who have completed 12 hours of college-level coursework with a GPA of 3.25 or higher may apply regardless of ACT or SAT scores.
To continue in the Honors Program, the student must maintain a GPA of 3.25 or higher. Attendance at Honors Lyceum events is also expected, and Honors students are highly encouraged to participate in community service activities and to offer service to the college. Honors classes are marked as such on the student’s transcript. Students who complete 12 hours in the Honors Program will be recognized during the college’s Honors Convocation; graduating students who complete 18 hours of Honors coursework with a GPA of 3.25 or higher will receive diplomas noting completion of the Honors Program.
An Honors Program Annual Scholarship is available to an Honors Program student enrolled in a minimum of nine hours of Honors Program courses each term with a GPA of 3.25 or higher.
