Honors Program Application

Mission Statement

The Salt Lake Community College Honors Program is a diverse, inclusive community of engaged students, faculty, and staff dedicated to a transformative education in which we all learn from each other. It is open to students of any major whose educational goals include transfer to a 4-year college or university. The Honors Program community is designed to increase opportunities for underserved students and students with the as-yet-untapped potential to succeed in their education by leveraging high-impact practices (HIPs), reflective ePortfolios, honors seminars, small cohorts, and enrichment experiences.

Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Salt Lake Community College Honors Program believes that inclusivity, diversity, equity, and accessibility are integral to fulfilling our mission for personalized, engaging, and transformative student-centered experiences. We believe in a culture where every person has strengths, perspectives, intersectional identities, and experiences that broaden and enrich our understanding of the world. Thus, we are committed to recruiting and retaining diverse honors students, faculty, and staff that reflect the communities we serve.

Honor Application

Look over these prompts and carefully formulate your responses offline in a word processor. Either copy and paste your answer or upload it to the application. We are looking for well-written, creative, and thoughtful replies in your application responses. Upon completion of your Honors Application, be sure to also apply for FAFSA and Award Springs. The Honors Program is committed to finding financial support for all of its students, so students should complete FAFSA in order to open as many options for financial support as possible. When you are ready to submit your answers, copy and paste your responses into the field following each question. If you have multimedia answers or supplemental digital artifacts you would like to use (videos, webpages, blogs, etc.), please upload the item and/or share its URL.

Important: Students must be a current or incoming degree-seeking SLCC student in order to be eligible to apply to the Honors Program. Audit and current high school Concurrent Enrollment students are not eligible to apply; however, we do encourage graduating Concurrent Enrollment and high school students to apply to the Honors Program.

*If you have any questions about the application or experience technical difficulties when uploading your responses or multimedia files, please contact Kathy Tran-Peters at Kathy.Tran-Peters@slcc.edu.
