How do I get the Honors Certificate?

also fill out The Robert "Bob" Elmore Honors Institute
Graduation Request & University Preference Form
which may be found on the
page. Deadlines are posted on the
and on the form itself.
Does the Honors Certificate allow me to transfer directly into the Honors programs at other universities?
Yes, The Robert "Bob" Elmore Honors Institute certificate is important in terms of the transfer to other university honors colleges/programs, however it is important to note that honors colleges/programs at universities also consider your GPA, resume, service and academic records when reviewing your application for admission. At some universities, The Robert "Bob" Elmore Honors Institute certificate can also increase the amount of the scholarship funds you are awarded.
Does The Robert "Bob" Elmore Honors Institute help me get transfer scholarships?
Yes, we are here to help you apply, but we need your cooperation in the following three ways. You must complete these steps in a timely manner and meet all BC and university deadlines.
You need to attend an Honors Transfer Scholarship Workshop in October/November prior to the year in which you plan to graduate.
You need to apply to the universities where you are interested in transferring.
You need to fill out and return the Graduation Request & University Preference Form
. You should submit copies of your university application with this form
Is it preferable to graduate in the winter (December) or in the spring (May)?
It is important for you to realize that all universities use their scholarship money as recruitment money to attract students to their institutions. Therefore, whether you plan to enroll at the university of your choice in the Fall (August) Term or the Winter (January) Term, you must have your application completed by the spring deadline dates (usually Feb. 1 or March 1) of the year in which you complete your degree at BC. The scholarship money is awarded in April, May and June, depending on the internal process at each University. You can always notify the university of your choice that you will be entering mid-year and your scholarship will be held for you. However, it is very important that you realize that you cannot be awarded transfer scholarship money mid-year; it is assigned at the beginning of the year or once you begin attending the university. For this reason, students who are considering December graduation should research the scholarship opportunities and deadline dates with extra care for January enrollment at their universities of choice.
