- The Honors Program offers students a host of opportunities:scholarships; smaller classes; interesting projects; connections with UA, NAU, and ASU Honors; leadership development; service learning; social networking; library privileges; and engaged peers and professors.
- There is no additional cost to join the Honors Program.To join, all your students need to do is take HON 101, which counts as an elective. To receive a certificate from the Honors Program, students need to complete 15 credit hours of Honors courses, including HON 101. Successful completion of a certificate means a student may be automatically admitted to UA Honors and only needs to complete 15 rather than 18 credits to graduate from UA Honors.
- HON and HC courses are available on all campuses.Students do not need to be in the Honors Program to take Honors Content (HC) courses. As long as they meet the eligibility requirements for Honors (i.e. maintaining a 3.5+ GPA and the appropriate placement test scores), they may take HC courses. All of our HC courses meet AGEC requirements, as well as counting toward the Honors Certificate. When students are in the program, they may also use an Honors Contract to turn any course into an Honors course.
- The Honors Club and PTK are available to Honors students. The Honors Club and PTK are involved with service and leadership projects, as well as social activities. This year, we are working with the VA Hospital, Goodwill Metro, the Pima Animal Care Center (PACC), Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, Casa Maria, RISE for Homeless Vets, and other organizations. Students may visit the Pima Honors Club Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pimahonorsclub).
