The CT State Community College Honors Program provides students with academic enrichment to their associate degree program. Throughout the cohort-based program, Honors students hone the leadership, academic, and professional skills necessary for transfer and future academic and career success. Honors students receive better teacher-student ratio, faculty mentoring, special programming, independent study opportunities, and early entrance into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. The Honors Program is flexible to fit with most degree programs and students can use Honors Program courses to fulfill General Education requirements. CT State students have the option of completing a two-year program or a 1.5-year program.

Throughout the Honors coursework, students also receive special advisement on transfer, and as a result, graduates and transfers from the Honors Program receive acceptance to and scholarship money from competitive schools.
