The Honors Program is designed to enhance the LaGuardia experience for highly motivated students. We are looking for students who want the most out of college and who desire stimulating academic challenges.
LaGuardia's growing Honors Program is designed to promote a rigorous academic experience for talented, intellectually curious, motivated, and ambitious students (full- or part-time, day or evening).
