The Honors Program

Are you ready to think more broadly, explore more deeply, and indulge your intellectual curiosity? Then the Honors Program at Oakton just might be for you. 

In small classes, you’ll study with dedicated faculty and motivated students. You’ll find opportunities for research, seminars, and more. You might join the Honors Student Organization or attend special Honors workshops and events. You’ll complete high-level work and prepare to succeed in a four-year institution or in the workplace.

To apply to the Honors Program at Oakton, you need at least one of the following:

  • For college students: a 3.5 GPA at any college 
  • For recent high school graduates: an ACT score of 25 or better or a GPA of 3.5. (Students with slightly lower scores or GPAs may request an interview to determine eligibility.)
  • GED of 300 or better

A current Oakton student may be eligible for Honors at Oakton by maintaining a GPA of 3.5 or above for at least 12 hours of college course work, or a 3.25 GPA with at least one instructor recommendation.

Students with associate's or bachelor's degrees may also be admitted.
