Honors Program

Faculty & Staff Resources

There are many ways for faculty and staff to engage with The Merrimack College Honors Program.  


Nominate a Student to Join the Honors Program

Faculty are invited to nominate current first year students to join the Merrimack College Honors Program for the 2015-16 academic year. Faculty are simply asked to send an email to stating the student’s name. The Honors Program will then obtain the student’s GPA and extend an invitation to students who meet the 3.7 GPA requirement. For more information, please refer to the flyer below. Nominations are due by January 30th.


Honors Program Committee

The Honors Program Committee (HPC) serves in an advisory capacity to the Merrimack College Honors Program.

Teaching in Merrimack Honors Program

Faculty from across the campus are engaged in teaching honors courses. Learn about the guidelines for creating a honors course.

Honors Components

Honors students may petition the HPC to grant honors recognition for a specially designed component of a non-honors course. The Honors component is developed by the student in consultation with a course instructor.  Learn more about requirements involved in this process.
