Honors Transfer Partners

Students completing the Saddleback College Honors Program enjoy enhanced transfer consideration and/or other benefits at the partner campus. Our partnerships differ widely, as might be expected because of the diversity of our partner schools. Partnerships may include guaranteed or priority acceptance consideration, special scholarships, housing priority, pre-transfer library privileges, recognition of honors program completion as an indicator of academic rigor, and a range of other academic, cultural, and social benefits. Partnerships may exclude certain departments or majors.

We work actively with the Honors Transfer Council of California to increase and strengthen our transfer partnerships. We are eager to work with colleges and universities who welcome and support excellent transfer students. 

Some of our partnerships are "honors-to-honors." That is, the partnership is with the honors program of the college or university rather than the school itself. This is true in particular for all California State Universities, but does include others. These "H2H" partnerships go into effect only after a student is admitted to the university.

You can explore our partner schools and get information about the partnerships at the Honors Transfer Council of California and UCLA TAP pages below.
