Our Honors Transfer Program provides a unique learning environment that stresses academic excellence. The major objective of the program is to prepare students to transfer by focusing on advanced reading, writing, critical thinking, and study skills.
HTP coursework is specifically designed to fit the requirements of various associate degrees, as well as requirements needed to transfer to the University of California, California State University, and most other universities.
The ideal amount of time to spend in the HTP is two years (four semesters) – but we know you might not be ready to join until you’ve been at ECC for a semester or two.
You can join the program at whatever time you like during your ECC career, as long as you have at least one year (two full semesters) to complete it.
If you’re applying to UCLA, however, there are other limitations about what classes you can take in your final semester — speak with a transfer counselor for more information.
