Honors Program Application

The Southwest Honors College is designed to complement the requirements for any degree program offered by the College. 

Completion of the Honors Core Curriculum will be indicated on your official transcript. If you receive a degree from Southwest Virginia Community College and have completed the Honors College Program, your transcript will carry a seal bearing the indication, HONORS. In addition, students who complete the honors program will receive a medal at the Spring Award’s Day Celebration and an honors graduation cord after their capstone presentation.

To graduate with Honors, a student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.275 or higher in 18-21 Honors classes used to fulfill the Honors Core Curriculum requirements with no grade below a C in any of these Honors courses.
