The Saddleback College Honors Program is an interdisciplinary effort to develop exceptional talent, ability, and scholarship in highly motivated students.
It is not a club, service organization, or even a recognition of past academic achievement.
It is, rather, a path to further and higher achievements.
Any Saddleback College student may enroll in any Honors class. No special permission is required.
Honors faculty design these classes to:
- develop strong "high-level" cognitive skills such as problem solving, evaluation, synthesis, critical thinking, independent thinking;
- build writing and research capabilities in students so that they can excel at upper-division work after transfer; and
- create a challenging, highly interactive and yet enjoyable academic experience.
Note: Students desiring "Certificate Student" status must submit at least the
"Applicant Information" sheet of the application before completing two Honors classes.
