Info for HTP Students

The Honos Transfer Program requires several different forms to ensure student success. Make sure to note the purpose of each form, what the form requires, when the form is available to submit, and any deadlines associated with the form.

Forms

All forms must be submitted online.

  • Read the instructions carefully before clicking the link to complete the form.
  • Forms will be confirmed when the HTP office receive them (you may not receive immediate automatic confirmation).
  • Please allow one week after submission to receive correspondence from our office.
  • If you have not received notification with 7-10 business days, contact the Honors Transfer Program office at 310-660-3815.

 

Students must complete a total of FIVE honors courses. We require students to be enrolled in at least ONE honors course per semester in order to stay active in the program. Students can take more than one honors course per semester, and they may also take honors courses in Winter and Summer sessions (although this is not required).

Sometimes, a student's schedule may prevent enrollment in an honors course. Therefore, a student is able to "roll over" an honors course for a future semester. Rollover courses are not retroactive. A student cannot roll over a course to fulfill the requirement for a previous semester. 

An honors course is eligible for rollover in two different ways:

  1. The honors course is taken during Winter or Summer session (to be "counted" for the following semester).
  2. More than one honors course is taken during Fall or Spring semester (to be "counted" for the following semester).
  • For example: An honors course completed in Winter can be rolled over to fulfill the honors course requirement for Spring semester. However, an honors course completed in Winter cannot be rolled over for the previous Fall semester's honors course requirement. 

There is no limit to the number of honors courses a student can roll over. However, rollling over a course requires student planning to ensure the following semester's honors course requirement is fulfilled. Rollover forms must be submitted by the end of Week 3 each semester.

The Course Rollover Form link is only active during Weeks 1-3 of the Fall and Spring semesters. If you are attempting to access the link below outside this timeframe, it will not work!

We understand students sometimes have difficulties that prevent them from meeting the HTP requirements in any given semester. Our reinstatement policy allows a student who has been suspended from the program to request reinstatement no more than twice while in the program. A student will be suspended from the Honors Transfer Program for ANY of the following reasons:

  • Not currently enrolled in an honors course (unless rollover arrangements have been made).
  • Not attended a workshop during the semester.
  • Transferrable GPA drops below 3.1.
  • Violation of Academic Integrity policy.

When a student applies for reinstatement, the request is not always granted. Here are a few reasons that a student's reinstatement request may be denied:

  • The student was technically never suspended.
  • The student did not attend a workshop by the due date.
  • The student's transferrable GPA is below the minimum 3.1 requirement at the time of submission.
  • The student's uploaded transcript is illegible or does not reflect the cumulative transferrable GPA.
  • The student violated HTP's Academic Integrity policy.
  • The student has been inactive from the HTP for more than four consecutive semesters (the student must reapply to the HTP). 

The HTP Reinstatement Form link is only active during Weeks 1-3 of the Fall and Spring semesters. If you are attempting to access the link below outside this timeframe, it will not work!

When a student begins the transfer application process to another four-year institution (usually in the Fall semester of their final academic year at El Camino College), the student must submit an Intent to Transfer Form through the HTP.  This form is necessary because:

  • The Intent to Transfer Form ensures students receive a permanent notation on their ECC transcript ("COMPLETED THE HONORS TRANSFER PROGRAM").
  • The Intent to Transfer Form ensures an invitation to the annual HTP Completion Ceremony held in spring.
  • The Intent to Transfer Form ensures students applying to UCLA and/or UC Irvine be eligible for benefits associated with honors transfer partnerships.
  • The Intent to Transfer Form ensures HTP graduating student names are listed in a special area of El Camino College's graduation program.

A student MUST submit an Intent to Transfer Form after registering for Winter/Spring if:

  • The student is applying to transfer to a four-year university or college.
  • The student is applying to UCLA and/or UC Irvine with honors transfer partner benefits.
  • The student completed all five required honors courses (or the last one will be in Winter/Spring).
  • The student will be attending the last required workshop(s) in the Spring.
  • The student has not completed two required counseling appointments and will provide proof of counseling in Winter or Spring.
  • The student is currently enrolled in the last required honors course(s) and has not received a final grade for the course(s).

The HTP Intent to Transfer Form link is only active late November through Early December. If you are attempting to access the link below outside this timeframe, it will not work!

When a student begins their final semester in the program (usually Spring), the student must submit the HTP Completion Form. We require this form for several reasons:

  • The Completion Form verifies that all program requirements have been (or are in the process of being) met.
  • The Completion Form involves providing valuable student feedback and program assessment.
  • The Completion Form ensures students receive a permanent ECC transcript completion notation.
  • The Completion Form ensures an invitation to the annual HTP Completion Ceremony held in spring.
  • The Completion Form ensures HTP graduating student names are listed in a special area of El Camino College's graduation program.

A student MUST submit an Completion Form when:

  • The student has completed all five required honors courses (or is currently enrolled in the final honors course).
  • The student has completed the final required workshop(s) of the semester (for a total of four).
  • The student has completed two required counseling appointments.
  • The student currently has at least a 3.1 transferrable GPA while in their final semester.

The HTP Completion Form link is only active Weeks 4-8 of Spring semester (early April deadline). If you are attempting to access the link below outside this timeframe, it will not work!

We understand a student's plans might change, difficulties arise or perhaps a particular support program may no longer beneficial.

Students who no longer wish to remain active in the Honors Transfer Program or fulfill its requirements may elect to exit the program. In order to officially withdraw from the HTP, students are required to submit the HTP Withdrawl Form for confirmation. Please allow 7-10 business days to receive correspondence.

Once a student's withdrawl form is officially confirmed, the student will: 

  • No longer receive priority registration (through HTP) at El Camino College.
  • No longer receive emails and other correspondence from the HTP.
  • No longer receive an HTP transcript notation.
  • No longer have access to the HTP Student Canvas site.
  • No longer be eligible for honors transfer partnership benefits.

Please note: If a student withdraws from the HTP, the student may apply for reinstatement within two semesters. If a student has been inactive from the HTP for more than two consecutive semesters, the student must reapply to the program.

The HTP Withdrawl Form can be submitted at any time using the link below.
