Applications for Spring 2019 are now Open!
We are now accepting new applicants for the Spring 2019 semester.
When applying to the program you have two options:

Please download the application and fill it out completely. Applicants who are first time Los Medanos College students need to attach their high school transcripts before a decision can be reached. Applicants in their first semester at LMC need to have all their professors fill out the Honors Grade Check Form.
You may mail your application to the Honors Program, drop it off in the Honors Center or put it in the LMC inter-campus mail for Honors Director Jennifer Saito. Our snail-mail address is

Note that if this is your first semester at LMC, you'll need to have all your professors fill out the Honors Grade Check Form for online uploading. Applicants will be notified of their admission status by e-mail.
Part of your application is a two-page essay which should be of the highest academic quality and reflect your best writing and thinking abilities. Please note that you get to select the topic from one of the following two choices:
1. Honors students are distinguished by their intellectual curiosity. Tell us about an idea or an experience you have had that you find intellectually engaging.
2. Honors courses expose you to challenging new concepts, more than you might find in regular classes. Tell us about a time you encountered a new idea that challenged what you previously believed or thought. What has been your response to that challenge?
