Honors Scholar Program
ENC’s Honors Scholar Program supplements students’ academic, spiritual, and ethical development through courses and activities designed to stretch the mind and strengthen the heart. Eligible students are encouraged to participate in honors classes, extracurricular activities, service projects, and learning opportunities with contemporary scholars in various fields. The program continues the long history of academic excellence at ENC and participating students may graduate with the transcript designation of Honors Scholar.
First-year students are invited to join the Honors Scholar Society by applying during the Fall semester to take the Honors course IS199 during the Spring semester. Students who complete IS199 with a B or better grade and have attained a composite GPA of 3.5 or above will be inducted into the Society at the end of their first year. Transfer students and others who were not invited to take IS199 may still join the Honors Scholar Society if after two full semesters at ENC they earn a composite GPA of 3.5 or higher and successfully complete at least one Honors course (either a designated Honors course or by contract).
Benefits Enjoyed by Honors Scholars:
Honors Scholars enjoy access to the Honors Scholar Program socials, lectures, trips, and leadership activities. Eligible students may enroll in Honors Scholar Program courses and also have the option of contracting regular courses for honors credit. Any honors courses completed with a grade of at least a B will be indicated as Honors Level on academic transcripts.
Students who successfully complete all Honors Scholar Program requirements will be recognized at graduation ceremonies, and receive an Honors Scholar notation on their transcripts.
