What if my test scores arenít quite good enough?

If your test scores are below the minimum requirements, it is possible that you may be able to gain admission to the Honors Academy by virtue of your academic and professional accomplishments. Students who have not met the minimal admission test score requirements may be admitted by completing a personal interview with the Honors Academy representative. This brief, face-to-face interview will be used to determine if there are extenuating circumstances that should be taken into consideration with regard to the studentís ability to succeed in the Honors Academy. To request an interview, please email RLCHonors@dcccd.edu.
