Apply to the Honors Program

The Honors Program at Heartland Community College was designed to meet the needs of highly motivated students who demonstrate a passion for learning and want to take the initiative in their own learning process.

To apply, you must:

  1. Complete a Heartland Community College application
  2. Submit all application materials to the Academic Affairs Division Offices, ICN 2000
    1. An Honors Program application (PDF)
    2. An official copy of your high school transcript

Materials can also be submitted to advisors in the Lincoln and Pontiac Centers. Current HCC students applying to the Honors Program do not need to resubmit materials that are already on file with the college.

Once accepted and enrolled in the program, students challenge themselves academically while enhancing their intellectual skills in a supportive and enriched learning environment that promotes academic excellence and recognizes outstanding performance. Students participate in cultural and social activities that stimulate their interest in community engagement and passion for lifelong learning.
