Honors Program FAQs

As part of the Molloy Honors Program, students have the opportunity to be involved with both organizations. For more information on scholarships, fellowships, paper submissions and presentations you can go to the NCHC and NRHC websites.

Are the Honors courses more work?

Honors classes by design are challenging as students explore material beyond the regular classroom experience. It is the integrative nature of the Honors courses that provide students with a high level of exposure and competency. All classes taken in the Honors Program fulfill General Education requirements.

What are the benefits of being in the Honors Program?

The benefits of being in the Honors Program are multifaceted. Students form strong connections with other Honors students and faculty, benefit from the small classes, form camaraderie during trips, and academically challenge themselves beyond coursework covered in the classroom.

Will my AP courses from high school count?

AP courses and/or High School College courses will be accepted  and may be used in lieu of certain  General Education Requirements with a score of Three (3) or higher.  AP or High School College courses will not be accepted in lieu of Honors classes because of its thematic bridge, but may be used in fulfillment of major requirements, minor requirements or calculated as elective credits.
