Exploring Benefits for Honors Students Admitted Through the Track II Process

Throughout the nation, colleges implement Honors programs for academically driven undergraduates. Central Michigan University utilizes a dual-track system for the Honors program; Track One students earn status as high school seniors, and receive full tuition or full ride scholarships. Track Two students enter the program after their second year, or as transfer students and receive no automatic scholarships. Both groups are held to higher academic standards, and complete similar requirements. The goal of this research is to examine perceived differences within Track One and Track Two Honors, and highlight patterns of satisfaction or dissatisfaction within the program. Results could illuminate a disconnect between the tracks, as well as suggestions to better facilitate the program itself.
