Honors Program at Durham Tech

Honors Program logoThe Honors Program at Durham Technical Community College provides advanced opportunities for learning, leadership, and service within the arts and sciences curriculum for academically motivated students to enrich their (and others’) experience in the classroom, on campus, and in the community and to prepare them for meaningful participation in the global economy.


To be eligible to participate, the student must submit an academic reference letter and be finished with all developmental course work prior to the semester in which they attempt an honors option.


The deadline for submitting proposals for spring 2014 has passed. Please review the Honors Proposal Guidelines and complete the Proposal form.

How to Participate

Each semester, the student will:

  • Enroll in a designated Honors course*;
  • Contact the instructor on the first day of class and indicate your desire to complete an Honors project; and
  • Collaborate with the instructor to design an Honors proposal. All proposals will be reviewed and approved by the Honors Program Committee. (Submitting an Honors proposal does not a guarantee approval.)

*If you wish to participate in an Honors course, please check this web page regularly for course offerings. All courses are not offered every semester.

Benefits of Participation

  • Opportunity to do in-depth research and writing related to a particular subject;
  • “Honors” indication on grade report;
  • Eligibility for Honors designation on transcripts and diploma upon completion of a minimum of 12 hours of Honors course credit with an A or B in each course and a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher;
  • Special recognition at graduation;
  • Enhanced transfer opportunities; and
  • Participation in Honors Program functions.
Honors seats are limited and very competitive.  Register early and plan accordingly.
