The Saddleback College Honors Program is an interdisciplinary effort to develop exceptional talent, ability, and scholarship in highly motivated students of all backgrounds in all majors. We welcome and serve students of all religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, nationalities, gender identities, disability statuses, and economic backgrounds.
Explore the benefits the Honors Program can provide to you, whether as a "Walk-In" student taking advantage of only one or two Honors classes or as a "Certificate-Track" student eligible for priority registration, special transfer agreements, and other benefits.
No application is necessary to be a Walk-In student; simply enroll in the Honors class you choose. For Certificate-Track status, we accept applications year-round, but applications must be submitted before students have earned grades in two Honors courses. Students seeking the shortest path to certificate completion should make sure they begin the program before completing ENG 1B.
