Honors is for Everyone!

The Skyline College Honors Transfer Program (HTP) offers honors credit to facilitate transfer to a four-year institution. 

Honors contract courses   are:

  • available to all students who are otherwise eligible to enroll in the class
  • offered in the 5 IGETC areas   that satisfy the lower-division breadth/general education requirements at both UC and CSU

Honors Program Students may elect to take as few or as many honors contract courses as they wish, but only those who take at least 4 contract courses in the program will be designated as honors graduates. Make transfer preparation a priority!
