Honors Program

The Purpose of the Honors Program

The Honors Program at West Virginia University Potomac State College provides intellectual challenges and enrichment opportunities to academically talented students.

Students who share similar work ethics, goals and aspirations can find a strong sense of community with their peers.

Honors courses are taught by some of our finest faculty members. Professors not only know your name but also your hopes and dreams. Limited class sizes allow for engaging discussions and debates.

Changes to the Honors Program

To align with changes occurring in the Honors College on the Morgantown campus, the Honors Program at PSC has also undergone changes. These changes will allow a seamless transfer into the Honors College upon changing to the Morgantown campus. The Honors Program Handbook 2017-2018 provides an in depth description of the requirements, for students beginning during the 2017 -2018 academic year, to graduate with honors distinction from PSC upon completion of an AA, AAS or BAS degree.

Admission in the Honors Program

Incoming freshman students must have a 3.3 high school GPA and 23 ACT or 1060 “old” SAT/1140 “new” SAT (reading and math combined) score.

Current Potomac State students and transfer students who have a 3.5 cumulative GPA may be eligible for admission into the Honors Program. Honors credits received at other institutions may be accepted as honors credits at Potomac State. Current and/or transfer students interested in the Honors Program should contact the Program Coordinator.
