Honors Program

Get the Competitive Edge!



Applications closed for Fall 2016

We will accept new members for Spring 2017.

Check back here in October.

Los Medanos College's prestigious Honors Program guarantees its high achieving members an enhanced academic experience at LMC and offers incredible benefits such as:


Transfer Partnerships with top Universities

We have 10 university honors partners including UCLA, Saint Mary's College and Mills College. These partnerships, for example, gave Honors Scholars an 76% acceptance rate in 2015 to UCLA as compared to only 29% for non-honors transfer students!

Advanced Honors Courses

Taught by great professors and surrounded by the best minds on campus. Honors Students commit to taking at least two honors courses per year, typically one each semester. These courses are more sophisticated and prepare you for transfer to top schools.


Exclusive Enrollment Privileges for Honors Courses

Only Honors Students may enroll in Honors Courses so they're much less likely to fill up before your registration date.

Honors Retreat 2010The Honors Center

Computers, tables, couches – the Honors Center has everything you need to study and collaborate with your fellow Honors Students. We also offer free printing privileges for program members.


Transcript notation of your Honors coursework

Looks great when applying to transfer or for scholarships!
