KCC Honors program deadline approaching

The registration deadline for Kirkwood Community College students who are interested in completing a fall Honors project is Friday, Sept. 25.

According to Dr. Peter Jauhiainen, Honors program chair, the Honors program is open to all students who meet the academic criteria, which includes a minimum Kirkwood GPA of 3.4 for returning students and a high school GPA of 3.6 for incoming freshmen. 

Students enrolled in the Honors program complete a one-credit-hour project with a faculty mentor.  

“It would be more beneficial to work with an instructor who you have had in the past, or a present teacher, one who knows your work ethic and one who knows you will be committed,” said Jauhiainen. 

He added that once a student selects an instructor, both the student and instructor sign a learning contract.  

If a student would like to participate in the Honors program, but needs help deciding on a topic, Jauhiainen said he is available to help. As stated on the Honors project website, “The nature of a student’s Honors project is left open to inspire creativity in both the student and the faculty member, as well as to allow for adaptation to a variety of disciplines.”

Students who complete the Honors program with a “B” grade or higher may take a free three-credit course at Coe College or Mt. Mercy University. 

“The Honors program is great, especially for students who plan on transferring to a four- year university, said Jauhiainen.
