Academic Recognition

The college recognizes curricular students who have earned superior grades while completing a minimum of 12 semester hours of credit, not including developmental courses, during a given semester. Students with a grade of “D”, “F” or “I” in any course will not be considered for honors.

  • Board’s Honor List: Each semester, students achieving a GPA of 3.8 or better are recognized as the RCC College Board’s Honor Students.
  • Dean’s Honor List: Each semester students achieving a GPA of 3.5 to 3.799 are recognized as the Dean’s Honor Students.
  • Honors List: Each semester, students maintaining a GPA of 3.2 to 3.499 are recognized as Honor Students.
  • Phi Theta Kappa: Phi Theta Kappa is a national honor society for two-year colleges which recognizes scholarship among associate degree students. In addition, it provides opportunities for leadership, service, and fellowship. To become a member, a student must (1) be enrolled in a regionally accredited institution offering an associate degree program; (2) have accumulated full-time status (at least 12 hours) in courses leading to an associate degree; (3) have established a grade point average of 3.5; and (4) be of good moral character and possess recognized qualities of citizenship.
  • Honors Program: The RCC Honors Program is designed to provide an enriched academic experience that will enhance a student’s individual development. Through this program, a student will be able to earn special recognition for achievement based on an advanced level of learning. A course in which the student is regularly enrolled may be converted to an Honors-designated course upon the successful completion of a project for that course. Students interested in the Honors Program must submit an Honors Program application.
