Established in 2009, the primary purpose of Cañada College's Honors Transfer Program (CCHTP) is to serve students whose educational goal is to transfer to a 4-year institution and complete a bachelor’s degree. The program is designed for students interested in participating in challenging, academically rigorous experiences through classes and seminars, and is meant to better prepare them for university work. All honors courses are open to the entire student population and are not limited to students who are members of HTP. We are members of the UCLA Honors Transfer Alliance Program (TAP) and the Honors Transfer Council of California HTCC.
CCHTP students benefit from studying in a research rich environment with other students who are dedicated to a rigorous exploration of academic, intellectual, cultural and social issues. During their studies they are eligible for priority enrollment, specialized academic counseling and the opportunity to develop and prepare original research at local, regional and national conferences. Students from all backgrounds and in all majors are encouraged to participate in Honors classes.
Every year Cañada students qualify for admission to prestigious universities such as Cornell, Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA and the London School of Economics. Students completing the CCHTP program enjoy a distinct advantage when transferring to UCLA and schools participating in the Honors Transfer Council partnership, which include another UC school: UC Irvine. In addition, those who complete the program are given recognition at graduation, on their transcripts and degree/certificate.

"My experience participating in the Canada College's Honors Transfer Program has perfected my ability to articulate and justify my activism regarding economic actions committed against our education system. By learning to develop thought provoking hypothesis and research alternatives, I know that I can challenge the status quo." Karina Gonzalez-de Graaf, Class of 2013
