Jordan College Upper Division Honors Cohort
Created in 2014, the program provides scholarly, creative and motivated Jordan College students an enhanced educational experience with advanced study and engagement with select faculty.
Applicants are reviewed and selected in the fall by the Jordan Council Honors Council.
Applicants must be juniors on course to graduate within two years; must be a Fresno State student for already at least one term; have a minimum GPA of 3.50 their last 60 units; submit a personal statement with references, writing sample and resume; and participate in a personal interview.
The following spring semester, honors program students take three honors seminar units and work with a faculty mentor to develop an honors research project. As a senior, they will participate in additional three spring-semester honors colloquium units, and present their completed project to students, faculty and the campus community.
Jordan College honor students receive incentives such as priority registration, extended borrowing time for library materials and special recognition at commencement.
