Honors Program

Saddleback College Honors Program


To participate in the Honors Program in Fall 2017, submit an application now

Applications for the Honors Program are still being accepted! Only the Fall priority registration cutoff has passed. Newly accepted students will be nominated for Spring priority registration and will be immediately eligible for Honors Counseling and all other Honors Program benefits.

The Saddleback College Honors Program is an interdisciplinary effort to develop exceptional talent, ability, and scholarship in highly motivated students of all majors. Honors students include

  • Walk-In Students who want to take only one or two Honors courses, or
  • Certificate-Track Students who aspire to earn the Honors Certificate.

You may register for and participate in any Honors course without submitting an application. As a Saddleback College student, you may enroll in any Honors class for which you meet the ordinary prerequisites, using the same procedure used to register in other classes.

Students seeking priority registration, UCI and UCLA library cards, Honors transfer, Honors counseling, and other benefits must submit an application (see "Forms & Downloads" on this page).  

There is no application deadline. Applications are accepted throughout the year. Nevertheless, interested students should not put off applying, since participation in Honors transfer partnerships may be jeopardized by a delay. Students seeking to apply to Certificate-Track status must do so before completing two Honors classes. Students completing their second Honors class who believe they do not meet the GPA or other requirements for admission must still submit the application in order to preserve their eligibility for eventual admission.

We offer workshops every Spring and Summer to help high school and new Saddleback College students learn about the Honors Program.
