FSCJ Honors Program

FSCJ Honors Program

The FSCJ Honors Program provides Associate in Arts students with opportunities for academic excellence, service-learning, leadership development, and fellowship within an intellectually vibrant, culturally diverse, and student-centered learning environment. Guided by knowledgeable and caring faculty, Honors students explore the world of ideas while benefiting from hands-on learning opportunities with a variety of local community and business partners.

The FSCJ Honors Program offers students two tracks, the Presidential Honors Scholars (cohort-based) and the Merit Honors Scholars (non-cohort-based). Additionally, students who are admitted to the Honors Program receive an academic scholarship. Presidential Honors Scholars receive a scholarship covering up to 60 credit hours of tuition toward an A.A. degree, and Merit Honors Scholars receive a scholarship covering up to $500 of tuition per term.


Students can apply to be considered for both tracks in the Fall Term. In the Spring Term, only the Merit Honors Scholars track is available. Most Honors classes are held at the South Campus, located at 11901 Beach Boulevard, with an increasing number of available online Honors classes as well.

Interested students may apply online by visiting the FSCJ Honors Program web page, clicking on “Application and Eligibility,” selecting “Honors Application,” and then following the guided steps. May 30, 2022, is the priority application deadline for admission in the Fall 2022 Term, and June 30 is the regular application deadline for admission this fall.
