Honors Scholar Courses

Honors courses provide an enriched and unique educational experience with small classes in a seminar format. Students challenge themselves intellectually in three-unit courses in a variety of disciplines.  All courses are transferable and meet the general education/breadth requirements.  Honors students have easy access to their instructors and are expected to utilize critical thinking and research skills throughout their course work.

Eligibility:  Enrolled or will be enrolled full-time or part-time at Sacramento City College, 3.0 GPA or better based on high school or college transcripts, eligibility for or successful completion of ENGWR 300, or upon application and letters of recommendation.

Students completing 12 units of Honors courses with at least a 3.0 GPA are designated “Honors Scholars” at graduation and on their transcripts.
