Requirements for Admission
Eligibility Requirements: Can I Join the Program?
All BHCC students who meet the eligibility criteria can register for Honors courses even before they apply for program membership.
Students who become program members enjoy the added benefit of taking an Honors Seminar, and the potential to graduate from the Commonwealth Honors Program.
We encourage you to apply for membership to the Commonwealth Honors Program if you are:
- a continuing student at BHCC with at least 12 completed college-level credits and an overall GPA of 3.2 or higher, or
- a transfer student with at least 12 completed college-level credits and an overall GPA of 3.2 or higher, or
- a high school graduate or current member of a BHCC dual enrollment program with an overall GPA of 3.2 or higher.
How Do I Apply for Membership?
You can apply online by filling out the online application for the Commonwealth Honors Program at BHCC. We accept and review membership applications all year round.
Only complete applications will be reviewed. The Program Director will communicate decisions to applicants typically within 2-3 weeks of receiving the application.
Interested in joining the Program but not quite sure if you are eligible? Contact our Program staff at CHP@bhcc.edu or visit the Honors Center in Room E145.
