Six-Week Honors Program

  • Dates: June 29 – August 11, 2023
  • Application Deadline: March 10, 2023

The Honors Program is open to rising high school juniors and seniors who meet the academic qualifications (GPA 3.8 or higher) necessary to participate. This program is asynchronous/online only. Students admitted into the Boston College Honors Program may earn college credit by enrolling in one (1) or two (2) undergraduate courses from a carefully curated list of undergraduate courses scheduled to run asynchronous/online through the Boston College's Summer Session.

Students will have access to BC resources but will not have any on-campus access. All BCE Honors who satisfy the requirements for the coursework are eligible to earn up to 4 semester credits and request an official transcript from the Office of Student Services.

Students admitted into BCE Honors will be provided with the list of the summer undergraduate courses available to them upon confirmation of intent to enroll in the Honors program. Their choices will be recorded, and the BCE program will enroll BCE Honors students in their courses of choice. BCE Honors students may not register themselves for summer courses.

Students who apply to the Boston College Honors Program cannot apply to the Two-Week Non-Credit Courses.
