Admission to Honors


There are two ways to become eligible to apply to the Honors Program.

1. Current CAC students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 in at least 12 transferable credits (earned at CAC) for admission to the Honors Program.

2. Pinal County high school students who graduated in the top 5% of their class or with a 3.5 cumulative GPA are eligible to apply to the Honors Program.

In addition, applicants must provide an Honors application, two current letters of recommendation from educators, unofficial transcripts, a 500-word statement explaining why you would like to become a member of the Honors Program. The essay may address any reasons you have, but it should explain why you are interested, how your interests relate to your future plans and why you think being in the Program would enhance your academic experiences.

Students may be asked to schedule an in-person interview with the Honors Program Director as part of the application process. To be accepted, students must be in good disciplinary standing with the college.

For more information, contact the Professor of Honors, Dr. Carol Johnson, 520-494-5108, carol.johnson8@centralaz.edu  or email Honors Division Assistant, Michelle Gomez at  honors.education@centralaz.edu.
