Starting your college career close to home doesn’t mean that living at home is your only option. At Navarro, both domestic and international applicants have housing options close to campus.

Residence Hall. Live in a secure, fully-furnished apartment-style residence hall with students from around the world. Enjoy the experience of on-campus living by taking part in residence life activities and the convenience of being only steps away from class.

Single Room. Rent a private furnished room in the home of a local family. Accommodations include access to bathroom facilities and the family kitchen where you can prepare your own meals. Single rooms are generally located within 45 minutes of campus and convenient to public transportation

Apartment. There are many apartments near campus. However, we do not make specific placement arrangements. We recommend that international students first live in a temporary homestay, then choose an apartment when you are familiar with the area.

Academic Pathways & Courses

The following presents an example of the coursework you might take as you pursue an Associate’s Degree through American Honors. Most American Honors programs require that 40% of your credits come from Honors courses.

Individual student curricula will vary based on their intended degree path. For example, if you are interested in the health sciences you would take Biology courses instead of Physics courses to satisfy your science requirements.
