Because You Deserve It!

You've worked hard. Your academic performance in the past has been exceptional. You want to keep learning at an optimum level because you take your academics seriously. You know the importance of a good education. You want to exceed limits. Better yet, you don't even believe in limits! That's why you're a candidate for Northeastern's Honors Program. Because you know you can do it. You know you deserve it.

In 2000, Northeastern Junior College established the first-ever Honors Program at a Colorado two-year college. This move, typical of Colorado's premier two-year institution, further demonstrates Northeastern's commitment to academic excellence. Now you don't have to attend a big university to participate in special programs and projects designed for the brightest and best students. Our small campus gives you the same intellectual challenges offered by honors programs at some four year colleges, but through a more intimate, meaningful experience. We think you deserve it.

What is the Honors Program?

The Northeastern Honors Program provides enhanced educational opportunities for academically talented, degree-seeking students in both transfer and career-technical programs. It is designed to enable you to develop to your fullest potential while you're a student on our campus. You're offered opportunities for extended academic and personal growth through special courses emphasizing critical thinking, verbal expression and creative problem-solving. You'll be inspired and challenged to move beyond the basic by instructors and staff who value your higher academic performance. Leadership development and community building experiences for highly motivated students are also benefits you may enjoy.

Honors courses are designed to further stimulate your mind,  stretch your thinking beyond standard disciplinary boundaries. They include more discussion plus creative connections that can result in more subtle or complex relationships. Ultimately, students who are involved in honors programs can expect to have a more affluent view of the world and their existence in it. Exceptional students deserving of exceptional opportunities.
