Honors to Honors

The Hood College Honors Program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to expand their knowledge base and critical thinking skills through an interdisciplinary exploration of topics. All transfer students who have successfully completed two years of an honors program at another college before transferring to Hood will be automatically invited to join the Honors Program at the junior level without having to complete the first- and second-year course requirements. Honors students will also be awarded a $2000 renewable scholarship for their participation in the program.

In order to complete the Honors Program, transfer students must complete at least 9 credits in honors courses at the 300-level or above, including at least one HON470 seminar. Additionally, all students in the Honors Program must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language through at least the 202 level.
