The Academic Excellence Awards are given at convocation each year. The awards are based on grade point average as calculated in March for graduating students.
This award is given at convocation each year to graduating students who have greatly contributed to the life of the college and university. These students embody the values and teachings of New Century College and show the promise of using what they’ve learned to make the world a better place. Students are nominated by faculty or other students or can self-nominate when the call for nominations is made near the start of the spring semester each year.
NCC Envoys are integral to the success of New Century College. Selected for their strong interpersonal, communication, and academic skills, envoys promote New Century College and George Mason University by leading admissions events, working with prospective students, and helping to plan engaging student events.
The Jon Sultan Writing Award was established by Jon's parents in loving memory of their son who was an integral part of the first Integrative Studies cohort in 1995. Among his many wonderful qualities, Jon was a gifted writer who was planning a career in teaching writing. This award is intended to recognize achievement and encourage the development of outstanding writing talent among Integrative Studies students.
The Jon Sultan Writing Award is presented annually to a first-year Integrative Studies student for excellence and creativity in writing as part of the Mason Cornerstones program -- a year-long general education program at New Century College. Students are nominated by faculty based on their writing submitted in the Cornerstones courses. New Century College is grateful to Jon Sultan's parents who established this generous award.
