Open to entering freshmen, the John Jay College Honors Program seeks to provide cultural, social and academic opportunities to exceptionally motivated undergraduates.  Eligible students will be invited to apply to the program prior to enrolling in their freshman year.  Students admitted to the program will complete 30 credits of Honors course work in special honors sections of courses that fulfill the College’s general education requirements.  Honors Program students write a senior thesis and are encouraged to present their honors research at a national conference.  For an application, please call 212.237.8553.
