The Honors Transfer Program is a cooperative effort between Los Angeles Harbor College and our partner colleges and universities. It is intended to serve students interested in a challenging curriculum designed to prepare them for transfer to a research university. Students who complete the honors program requirements will receive priority consideration for admission to our partner colleges and universities. Specific admission criteria for each partner college or university is available at the Honors Transfer Council of California and the UCLA Transfer Alliance Program.
