Honors Program Benefits

Transfer opportunities

MWCC Honors students have transferred to: Bentley, Boston University, Clark University, Mount Holyoke, Northeastern University, Regis, Smith, Wellesley, UMASS, and several state colleges, just to name a few. After graduating from MWCC, most enter these colleges as juniors, many with partial or full scholarships.

Honors Center

Just for Honors students, the Honors Center is a convenient place to meet, study, and collaborate on projects.
