The Honors Program at Alfred State was created to encourage motivated, curious, academically superior students to explore some aspect of their program in greater depth and to broaden and deepen their awareness of themselves as responsible, contributing members of a larger community. Honors Program participants complete a series of seminars, as well as a substantial honors project and 10 hours of volunteer community service. The permanent college transcript of students completing program requirements will read “Honors Program Graduate.”
The Honors Program coordinator reviews academic records of current and incoming freshmen and invites students with a record of strong academic achievement to apply for Honors Program status. The coordinator makes the final decision based on the application, including the required student essay, letters of recommendation from two educators, and meeting with the student. Any current Alfred State student with a GPA of 3.5 (of a possible 4.0) or better and at least one year remaining at the college is welcome to apply to the program. Students accepted into the Honors Program remain in the program of their choice for degree purposes.
