FVCC Honors Program Accepting Applications for Fall Admission

Applications Submitted by May 1 Given First Priority


The Honors Program, formerly The Scholars Program, at Flathead Valley Community College is accepting applications for fall admission into the program. The Honors Program at FVCC provides highly-motivated students opportunities to experience academically rigorous cross-disciplinary honors courses.


According to Honors Program Director Christina Relyea, Ph.D., the program’s mission is to encourage talent and stimulate the imagination as students experience academic inquiry and discovery within a supportive learning community. Students are provided more extensive perspectives on topics through seminar-style classes that incorporate two or more disciplines. Classes are taught by a team of two instructors and are offered during the fall and spring semesters at FVCC.


Each full-time student accepted into the program will receive a tuition waiver and will be assigned a faculty mentor. Additionally, students will have access to the Scholars Program Center which consists of study area, classroom and library. Program graduates will receive special designations on their transcripts and will be presented medallions upon successful completion of the program.


The program provides students with seamless transitions to either the Davidson Honors College at The University of Montana or the University Honors College at Montana State University. The program also assists students in successfully transferring to honors programs at four-year colleges and universities across the nation.


Class sizes are limited to 18 students. Applications submitted before May 1 will receive first priority. Applications will continue to be accepted until the program is full. For more information and admissions requirements, visit, or contact Relyea at 756-3946 or
