The Honors Transfer Council of California (HTCC)
The Honors Transfer Council (HTCC), founded in 1987, is a consortium of over 30 California community college honors/scholars program coordinators. The HTCC negotiates special transfer agreements linking community college honors/scholars programs to specific four-year institutions, whether large or small, public or private. Students completing HTCC programs enjoy enhanced transfer considerations at the four-year institution (e.g., guaranteed or priority transfer, special scholarships, housing concessions), and a range of academic and social benefits before transfer as well.
Membership in the HTCC provides the following benefits to Santiago Canyon College and all other member colleges:
