About the Honors Transfer Program

The Honors Transfer Program (HTP) provides a unique learning environment that stresses academic excellence and develops the awareness necessary to achieve this goal. The major objective of the program is to prepare students to transfer by focusing on advanced reading, writing, critical thinking, and study skills. Honors courses are academically enriched to stimulate students intellectually, encourage independent critical thinking, and promote close interaction between students and faculty.

Honors courses fit into requirements of various associate degrees, as well as requirements needed to transfer to the University of California, California State University, private and out-of-state institutions. Generally, students in the HTP complete the same number of courses as other students planning to transfer.
