Pete P. Peters Honors Program

The Pete P. Peters Honors Program at Reedley College is designed to challenge students with a customized curriculum and reward their efforts through priority registration, scholarship, field trips, and guaranteed transfer agreements. Students who have demonstrated exceptional academic achievement in high school and plan to continue their pursuit in college and then at four-year university are admitted to Reedley College under the designation, "Honors at Entrance." They begin a sequence of classes and activities to prepare them for transfer to the best four-year institutions with special recognition on their diplomas, transcripts, and at the commencement ceremony itself. Honors students are part of a close academic community of highly motivated and dedicated students and instructors. For more information, email emily.berg@reedleycollege.edu or call Emily Berg at (559) 638-0300, ext.3150 .
