I am so glad I chose to be a part of The Honors Program at National Park College. Joining the program made the transition from High School to College so much easier by providing me with instructors to guide me and peers to relate to. Through the opportunities for service learning, I have built connections in the community that will last a lifetime.

Currently Enrolled Students

Any currently enrolled student at National Park College, or transfer student, may apply for admission to the Honors Program after the successful completion of at least 12 hours of college coursework. Current students who are selected for the Honors Program must complete all academic requirements of the program to receive an Honors Diploma, regardless of how many existing credit hours they have previously completed.

To apply to the Honors Program as a current or transfer student, the following is required:

  • NPC online application for admission (if transfer)
  • Honors Program online application
  • Overall GPA of 3.25 for college coursework
  • Reasonable progress towards completion of chosen degree or certificate program

Every application must be complete before review and admission is based on a subjective assessment of each student's application materials by the Honors Program. No student, regardless of academic achievement, is guaranteed acceptance. All decisions by the Honors Program are final and not subject to appeal.
