Program Description

Academically talented students with majors such as chemistry, music, nursing and physics that require a strict course of study are encouraged to enroll in the Honors Seminar Program to earn an Honors Certificate as an alternative to the Honors Diploma. Students may take some of their basic general education courses such as English, speech, humanities and history within the Honors curriculum. The Honors Certificate is one of five tracks available in The Art & Phyllis Grindle Honors Institute.

To earn an Honors Certificate, students must take a minimum of 13 Honors credits. These credits apply to the Associate in Arts and the Associate in Science degrees.

Like the Honors Diploma Program (an A.A. degree program), the Honors Certificate is restricted-access. Candidates must:

  • Apply and be accepted to Seminole State College;
  • Provide official transcripts, indicating successful completion of high school or GED®;
  • Have a high school GPA of 3.2 or have earned a 3.2 GPA in a minimum of six credit hours of college-credit classes;
  • Have a score of at least 23 on the ACT; or 95 on the CPT Reading Test and 75 on the CPT Math Test or 1050 on the SAT; or 1050 on math and writing or reading on the new SAT;
  • Submit an application to the Honors Program;
  • Submit two letters of recommendation;
  • Schedule an interview with the Honors Coordinator;
  • Complete an on-site writing sample.
