Graduates of accredited high schools, transfer and current students who have achieved
a grade point average of 3.50 or above, have an exciting and challenging opportunity
available to them at Allegany College of Maryland. The Allegany College of Maryland
Honors Program includes honors-by-contract courses and special activities such as
the Honors Fair, honors receptions, travel to conferences and access to honors scholarships.
Since the Honors Program is not a separate curriculum, the student may major in any
Allegany College of Maryland one-year or two-year program and still participate in
the Honors Program.
Students who are members of the Honors Program and are enrolled in Honors course(s) will be eligible for a reimbursement of one-half of the in-county tuition for that course(s) paid by the Allegany College of Maryland Foundation. Students in the Honors Program are required to complete a minimum of 12 hours of honors courses with a grade of "B" or better, must maintain a 3.0 GPA, and must provide two hours of service to the college or the community per semester.
As a participating member of the National Collegiate Honors Council, the Northeast Collegiate Honors Council, and the Maryland Collegiate Honors Council, we support academic excellence at the Allegany College of Maryland.
To apply for the Honors program, we require:
NOTE: If total scholarship awards exceed the overall semester cost to attend the college, the Honors Program tuition payment will be reduced and will thus be less than 50% of the in-county semester tuition.
