For Current HTP Students

Luis MendezThe Honors Transfer Program is a really great program! I really enjoyed the honors courses that I took because the professors were wonderful and my classmates were motivated students like me. Being a STEM major was tough at times, but Honors helped me stay on track and positive. I highly recommend joining Honors Program! It was a great experience! -Jasmine Hormati

Countdown: 5 Steps to Completion of the HTP. To complete the HTP, you must do the following:

  • Complete at least 5 honors courses
  • Attend at least 4 HTP workshops
  • Maintain a 3.1 GPA or above
  • Go to 2 counseling appointments
  • Complete 1 completion form and turn it in at the Honors Transfer Program office

How to stay in good standing in the program: To stay in good standing in the program, you must:

  1. Take an HTP course every semester. If you are “banking” an honors course that you took during a previous center, you must turn in a banking form to the program assistant at the start of the semester. You can pick one up in the HTP office, or else download it here.
  2. Attend a workshop every semester for your first 4 semesters in the program.
  3. Maintain at least a 3.1 overall GPA.
  4. CHECK YOUR ECC EMAIL EVERY DAY!!!!!

Failure to meet any of these criteria will result in suspension from the program, meaning that you will forfeit your priority registration for that semester, and will not be eligible to present at research conferences, be TAP certified, or apply for honors-specific scholarships. To rejoin the program, you must address the issue and then submit a reinstatement form. You can pick up this form in the HTP office, or download it here.
