Community College Honors
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
The Honors College has an ongoing commitment to develop relationships with community colleges that offer honors courses to their students, and to promote transfer opportunities for those students coming to Appalachian State University. An MoU makes it possible for students at a community college to transfer to ASU and continue their honors education in order to graduate with University Honors.
