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 79% acceptance rate in 2018 to UCLA as compared to only 24% 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.
The 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.
