If you have a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher and can check off at least six items on the self-recommendation survey, you may already be eligible to take honors courses based on a placement pathway. High school course work, grades, and scores (SAT, ACT, placement) may automatically qualify you for honors courses. For detailed placement requirements, click here.
If you are interested in the Mercer Honors Program, contact your guidance counselor to sign up for MCCC advising at your high school or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an on-campus advising appointment. You will need to bring an official copy of your transcript and other documents that establish your qualifications. Students pursuing this pathway may use the Placement Pathway Teacher Recommendation Form.
Note: If you would place into honors courses, but you have already registered, it is still possible to switch to honors courses before the semester begins. Email email@example.com.
If you do not place into honors courses, you may choose to submit an application. This includes an essay on a Mercer Honors Program topic, high school transcript(s), explanations of transcript(s), and one or more formal letters of recommendation from high school teachers. For more information about how to submit materials, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who transfer to Mercer with college-level credits should meet with an Honors Advisor to discuss whether their completed course work places them into honors courses. Please email email@example.com.
If you are already an MCCC student on campus and have completed college-level credits toward your degree, you can be admitted to Honors courses based on your MCCC GPA and/or a recommendation from a professor at Mercer. Contact the Director of the Mercer Honors Program or Honors Success Coach for more information.Dr. Bettina Caluori

International students must complete 12 credits or more toward their degree at Mercer before applying for Honors. At that point you may apply to the Honors Program as a continuing student (see above).
