I am interested in becoming a member of the Honors Transfer Program. Who’s eligible?
To qualify for admission to the Honors Transfer Program a student must meet the following three criteria:
How do I apply for the Honors Transfer Program?
Complete the Membership Application available here. Applications will be reviewed every fall and spring semester. Applications will not be reviewed over the summer.
How do I complete the Honors Transfer Program?
Admitted members must complete a minimum of 15 units of honors course credit with a "C" or better and have a minimum overall 3.3 transfer GPA. A maximum of two courses can be from Honors contracts.
Note: "transfer GPA" applies to transfer-level courses that you have taken at Cañada College and other institutions. Make sure that Cañada College has your transcripts from all of the other colleges you have attended. Contracts in 695 Independent Study and other CSU only transferable courses may NOT be used for UCLA TAP certification, however they do count toward Cañada College’s Honors Transfer Program graduation and completion.
Can I use Honors credits earned at other colleges to help complete the Honors Transfer Program?
You may petition to have honors credit received at other colleges count in our program, but it is not guaranteed.

Who's is eligible for priority registration?
Priority registration gives specific groups of students the opportunity to register for classes early. Generally, groups are given priority based on maintaining current Student Educational Plans (SEP's), completing the Matriculation process, and earning a total number of units with the district. To receive a priority registration date, students must be in "good standing". The state defines "good standing' as students who are not on academic/progress probation (for two consecutive semesters) or on dismissal, or have not earned more than 100 degree applicable units. According to Title 5, concurrent students are given a later registration date.
