Honors Program

The Honors Program at the Community College of Rhode Island is a program in which students can enhance their educational experience while at CCRI by studying topics of their choosing in more depth. The Honors Program reflects the College's commitments to academic excellence.

The mission of the Honors Program at CCRI is to provide an academically-challenging and enriching learning experience above and beyond the standard curriculum to highly-motivated and intellectually-talented students. This community of scholars, in which enthusiastic students and faculty engage in enriched academic experiences, will strengthen the scholarly profile of the institution as a whole.

Students participate in the Honors Program by completing additional Honors Projects within courses they are currently taking, relating to the curricula of those courses. The title of the course on the transcript changes to “Honors in Course Title”, and a second 0.5 credit course is added to the students' schedule, reflecting the honors portion. Students who complete four Honors Projects at CCRI are designated Honors Program Graduates and receive special recognition.

To learn more about participating in the Honors Program, please read the Introduction page.
