  • Because Honors Studies encourages you to incorporate a personal passion into your work, you'll be able to delve into a topic you are enthusiastic about and explore your passion through a new lens.
  • Upon graduating from FLCC with 15 points of Honors Studies experience, an Honors Studies Scholar designation will be placed on your transcript, along with supporting documentation for your resume and transfer. (You must maintain a 3.25 grade point average to achieve the Honors Studies Scholar distinction.)
