How to Apply

The Honors Program at CCBC seeks students who are both academically gifted and highly motivated. Each CCBC campus — Catonsville, Dundalk, and Essex — has an honors program.

In order to be considered for admission to the program, students must complete and submit an application, recommendation form, 500 word essay, writing sample and high school and/or college transcripts. Transcripts should be sent directly to the Honors office.

Note: Students who are not currently attending CCBC must also submit an application of admission to the College.

New and currently enrolled CCBC students start here:

  • New students who enroll at CCBC directly after graduating high school may print this application and submit it to the Honors Program Office on campus.
  • Currently enrolled CCBC students may complete the online application OR download and print the application.
  • New and currently enrolled students use this form to obtain a recommendation from teachers.
  • Completed applications should be submitted to your campus honors office.

Deadline: The Honors Committee meets regularly during the semester to review completed applications, so students may submit materials at any time. However, students are strongly advised to contact our office to determine a specific deadline for your interview. We will contact you by mail once we've reached a decision about your application.
