The Honors Certificate offers students a variety of enrichment opportunities to help them attain their full academic potential. Students earn the certificate through classes they are taking as part of their degree or certificate pathway. HON 101 can be substituted for STU 100 or STU 107.

Students must complete at least 15 credit hours of Pima Honors courses, including HON 101, with an A or B grade, and graduate from Pima with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.

Students who choose not to pursue a certificate may still participate in the activities of the Honors Club or the Phi Theta Kappa scholastic honor society.

Special Admissions Program: You must fulfill the requirements listed in Program Admission. Speak with a campus honors coordinator for details.

Academic Options

The Pima Honors Program works closely with Arizona universities to support our students transferring to university honors programs. Any student who completes the Honors Certificate at Pima is automatically eligible for any of the universities’ honors programs. Eligible students will get a slight reduction in the number of required honors courses in their last two years.
