The Sinclair Honors Program is designed to meet the needs of students who seek intellectual challenges and are willing to assume more responsibility for their learning experience. Realizing every student is different the Honors Program has several paths available to allow students to reach their academic goals.

Graduating with Honors - You do not have to take classes for Honors, be a member of Phi Theta Kappa or be involved in the Sinclair Honors Program in anyway in order to receive Honors Cords at graduation. Honors and high honors for the commencement ceremony are determined by the cumulative grade point average at the end of the fall term. To qualify for honors a student must have a cumulative grade point average between 3.400 and 3.899. To qualify for high honors a student must have a cumulative grade point average 3.9 or better.

Individual Honors Path – The Individual Scholars path is less structured program allowing students to take as few or as many classes for Honors as they like

Scholars Path – The Scholars Path is a more structured program that requires the student to think critically, reflect upon experiences and become involved in the community in addition to taking Honors Classes. The Sinclair Honors Program currently offers two Scholars Paths

Phi Theta Kappa - Phi Theta Kappa is the International Honor Society of Two Year Colleges. It provides recognition for students enrolled in degree programs at accredited community colleges. Eligible students become a part of a large, dynamic honor society upon induction. Students do not have to take Honors Classes to be eligible for Phi Theta Kappa.
