Trefny Honors



-Providing exceptional opportunities for learning and development for our exceptional students.

-Developing Community Leaders through interdisciplinary research.

-Promoting Equity and Access in Honors education.

Developing interdisciplinary problem solving and research skills help students gain a competitive edge in the college transfer and scholarship process. Honors students will become part of a community of scholars, be involved with advanced projects, internships, service learning, and travel opportunities through the Honors Program, providing an exceptional RRCC experience. This is a two-year program intended to help students prepare for transfer and develop knowledge, skills, and abilities that will benefit each student. Once admitted to the program, the Honors student receives specialized advising, takes Honors classes and becomes part of a student community.
