SPECIAL PROGRAMS 

Honors Programs

SUNY Delhi offers honors programs meant to provide high-achieving students opportunities to challenge themselves intellectually, to create mentoring relationships with faculty members, and gain recognition from the college as well as potential employers and transfer institutions.  SUNY Delhi currently has three honors programs: the Associate Degree Honors Program open to all students in an associate degree program with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher, the Bachelor Degree Honors Program open to all students in a bachelor degree program with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher, and the Presidential Scholar Program open to high school graduates in Delaware and Otsego counties.

The program offers the chance to engage in stimulating inquiry while working closely with faculty members. Honors courses have limited enrollment to guarantee quality interactions between students and professors.  The courses provide in-depth considerations of a wide range of challenging topics.

The Honors Program designation on a student's transcript reinforces to potential employers or transfer institutions that the student has not only maintained a high GPA, but has done so while taking particularly rigorous courses.  Dedicated funds are available for competitive Honors Program scholarships.  Students can apply for scholarships after they have completed a minimum of one semester enrolled in SUNY Delhi's Honors Program.

Applications, forms, and further information for these programs may be found at www.delhi.edu.
