The Honors Program
The PVCC Honors Program seeks to engage a diverse cohort of students in learning experiences which promote their intellectual curiosity and growth. Smaller and more interactive classes, student-driven inquiry and research, and extra-curricular learning activities result in engaging and advanced course work for motivated students. The Honors Program can help you gain a competitive advantage in future college, scholarship, and employment applications.
Several PVCC Honors students have been recognized nationally by being named to the All-USA Community College Academic First Team and at the state level as New Century Scholars. Other PVCC Honors students have received scholarships and academic awards at PVCC and have played prominent roles in the College’s Student Government Association and other clubs. Our students have transferred successfully to the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, the College of William and Mary, James Madison University, Mary Baldwin College, Georgetown University and Smith College among others.
PVCC offers smaller, interactive, seminar-style classes for motivated students. Students with a minimum GPA of 3.0 who meet the course prerequisites may enroll themselves in an Honors class. Honors classes are designated by a -77 section number.
