Welcome to the Riverside City College Honors Program!
We offer transferable classes featuring an enriched, engaging curriculum and smaller class sizes offered in the seminar-discussion format for all eligible RCC students, including international students.
We have classes in disciplines all across the college, from biology and anthropology to art history and dance appreciation to economics and psychology, and so many more (for a complete list, click on the fact sheet link at right).
To make it easier for you to get started, Honors Program applications are accepted all throughout the year (Even though the physical campus is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still accepting applications for fall 2020!). We know that the sooner our students find the program, the more likely they are to complete the program and reap all of its benefits, so don't hesitate. Send your application in today!

COVID-19 and the Honors Program:
- All Honors-related on-campus
activities, meetings, events, orientations, conferences, etc. including
access to the Honors Study Center (QD 207) are suspended until further
notice. We will begin planning new Honors events only when we know for
certain when it is safe to return to campus.
- The UCLA STOMP
Conference, which was the event we were planning on attending for the
field trip and was cancelled due to COVID-19, will be replaced by an
online webinar which will cover some of the same content. It won’t be
nearly as fun as going to UCLA in person, but we’re able to get much of
the same information online at the following link: http://www.admission.ucla.edu/stompconference/
- Similarly, the UCI
Research Conference has also been cancelled, but it will be shifting to a published online format. For those of you who were accepted to the conference, this is still an important achievement! If you had an abstract accepted to the conference, you are encouraged to revise it and send it to Prof. Amidon. It will be posted in the online conference program on the HTCC's website. If you were accepted for a poster presentation, contact Prof. Amidon for the template that will allow you to convert your poster into a digital format of high quality for publication on the HTCC website.
For current and prospective Honors students, Professors Amidon and Hogan have virtual office
hours in lieu of holding drop-in hours in QD 207. Both will be holding hours
via Google Hangouts.
