Students are now able to register to be part of the MATC Honors & Awards Program. Did you know that you don't need to have a perfect 4.0 GPA to apply for these awards and honors? Anyone that has obtained the required number of credits can apply.
The MATC Honors & Awards Program allows students to further reach their educational goals by offering different honor societies and academic awards.
The honor programs are National Technical Honor Society; Phi Theta Kappa; All USA Academic Team; and President's, Dean's and Provost's Lists. The academic award programs are President's Award, State Ambassador Award and Lamp of Knowledge Award. Each honor and award has different application requirements.
Harriet G. Croskey, Ed.D., coordinator in Office of Student Life, states that most honors and awards require you to have a certain amount of credits and a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.
One award, the President's Award, requires you to have cumulative GPA no lower than 2.75. National Technical Honor Society and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society also require you to pay a membership fee in order to fully join the society.
Despite all the requirements to apply for certain awards, what you can receive will make applying worth it.
Croskey stated that applying for any honor or award has been a huge benefit to students' education. Applying for one of these can be a valuable aid to reach your academic goals.
You can be eligible for scholarships for four-year colleges for a decent amount of money. You can also receive positive recommendations for other colleges and receive invites for special events for other awards and honors.
Any student can benefit greatly from what each award and honor program has to offer.
The MATC Honors & Awards Program can help make your educational path an easier path to travel and it's worth the challenge. If you choose not to try, you could miss a golden opportunity. Applying for these programs is an opportunity you don't want to overlook. Try for one or multiple honors and awards and make your pursuit for an education a lot easier.
