"I attribute my success as a transfer student to not only the long hours and hard work I put into studying, but also the supportive community that the Honors Program provided for me."

— Itzania, El Camino College

Who are we?

The HTCC is a consortium of over fifty honors programs in California community colleges.  Each is represented by its honors program director and its designated honors counselor.

When and where are
HTCC meetings?

We meet three times each semester  

(Click on the schedule link for details.) 

Guests and observers are welcome at any meeting. Please notify the president if you wish to attend (see officer information here).

How do new members join?

Full membership is available to colleges that have operating honors programs; guest membership is available to colleges developing programs.

If you are interested in membership, please complete the HTCC Application. For more information, see the New To Honors page.

What do we do?

The HTCC is a forum for honors directors and counselors to share experiences and successful practices in dealing with talented and motivated students.

The HTCC is UC Irvine's partner for its annual UCI Community College Honors Research Conference, which gives students in community college honors programs the opportunity to present the results of their work. 

The HTCC provides an annual Teaching and Learning in Honors Symposium that invites faculty and counselors to discuss honors pedagogy and practical strategies to increase student engagement in community college honors programs.

The HTCC negotiates special transfer agreements with colleges, universities, and upper-division honors programs nationwide. Students completing our programs enjoy enhanced transfer consideration at the partner-campus. See our Transfer Partner pages for details.


The HTCC awards scholarships and research prizes to community college honors students.
