Advanced Study in Mathematics and Natural Sciences

The Center for Advanced Study in Mathematics and Natural Sciences (CASMNS) provides speakers, research opportunities for selected students, and advanced study opportunities in biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics, and physics.

Students desiring CASMNS opportunities should speak with a CASMNS faculty member during CASMNS orientation to schedule an interview, and if appropriate, the student will be assigned a supporting instructor.


Honors Coursework

The Honors Institute at Collin College can provide a student with a challenging learning experience designed for students with advanced academic skills and a commitment to learning. Honors courses are specially designated academic course sections, shown in the registration schedule by an “H” at the end of a course number. Enrollment in an honors course will be recorded on the student’s transcript and may qualify the student for honors scholarships. The student must have a 3.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA) to be eligible for enrollment in honors courses.
