Honors Program FAQs

Are the Honors courses more work?

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

What are the benefits of being in the Honors Program?

The benefits of 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.  They can only be used to fulfill the major requirements, minor requirements or calculated as elective credits. However, AP or High School College courses will not be accepted in lieu of Honors classes because of the thematic nature of the curriculum.

How is membership determined?

Membership in Molloy University Honors is open to incoming freshmen who have been invited to the program.  Acceptance to the Honors Program is based on superior academic achievement. Molloy prides itself on students learning from one another and being a part of a consistent cohort.
