LIHC establishes enrollment agreement with Durham Tech honors program

Students graduating from Durham Technical Community College’s Honors Program will soon be able to enroll at UNCG and work toward earning full university honors from UNCG’s Lloyd International Honors College (LIHC).

To be eligible, the student must transfer a minimum of 12 hours of honors course credit with a grade of A or B in each course, have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher, and be accepted in the UNCG honors college through the UNCG admissions process.

Currently, more than 20 students transfer from Durham Tech to UNCG each year, notes Dr. Jerry Pubantz, dean of the UNCG honors college.

At UNCG, Durham Tech graduates would complete a number of requirements to graduate with full university honors: Disciplinary Honors in their major with a B or better in all honors work; LIHC’s International Experience requirement by studying abroad for a semester; a foreign language through the intermediate level; and a grade point average of 3.3 or higher at the time of graduation from UNCG.

UNCG established its first such agreement with a North Carolina community college honors program – Southwestern Community College – in 2011.
