The Honors Transfer Program at El Camino College is designed to better prepare the highly motivated student to transfer successfully to a university and complete a bachelor's degree.
The program provides a unique learning environment which stresses scholastic excellence and develops the academic awareness necessary to achieve this goal. The major objective of the program is to better prepare students for transfer by focusing on enhanced writing, reading and study skills.
Now, HTP students have the opportunity to do a presentation at a UC through the Honors Research Conference. This year's Conference will be held at the University of California Irvine on February 28, 2009.For more information about this Conference, please go to www.honorstcc.org.
