Signature Courses for SPRING

Students may complete required or additional honors courses through the signature course option. Signature courses are upper-level courses, taught using high impact practices, that are generally unique to RRCC and taught by our top faculty. These courses will be identified each semester. To earn Honors credit, the student needs to earn a B or better.  The Honors designation will then be added to the student transcript.
