Eligibility

To be admitted to the Honors Program as a first-time freshman, you must have a minimum average of 90 as determined by your high school transcript and two letters of recommendation from individuals familiar with your academic ability and potential.

Alternatively, you may apply on the basis of at least 15 credits of college work with a minimum GPA of 3.5 and two letters of recommendation from instructors familiar with your academic ability and potential. If you have attended another college, we will review your transcript from that institution as part of our decision-making process. If your most recent college experience includes at least 15 credits at OCC within the past two years, you may request that only your OCC record be taken into account.
