Hall of Honors

Hall of Honors, established by the Associated Students of Lower Columbia College, pays tribute to one current student who has brought distinguished recognition to the college.

Honors Lists

LCC recognizes students achieving notably high grades for any quarter. The President’s List honors students earning 12 or more credits with a 3.80 or higher GPA for that quarter. The Dean’s List honors those earning 3.25 to 3.79. Students who earn these honors are notified by mail or email and names are released for publication.

Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Scholarship

The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship makes it possible for the nation’s top community college students to complete their bachelor’s degrees by transferring to a four-year college or university.

Outstanding Student Awards

Each spring, LCC faculty and staff select outstanding students from their respective fields of study and activities for recognition. The students are honored at a reception hosted by the Associated Students of Lower Columbia College.

Phi Theta Kappa

Gamma Tau, the college’s chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa international two-year honor society, emphasizes scholarship, leadership, service, and fellowship. Membership is open to all students who have completed 12 credits with a 3.5 GPA or higher. In recent years, Gamma Tau chapter members have been named to the National Dean’s List and received Academic All-USA scholarships, among others. The chapter takes students to area conferences, and members volunteer often on campus and in the community.
