The Honors Transfer Program (HTP) at Cañada is designed to support highly motivated, high achieving students, and is meant to better prepare them for university work. To be a member of the HTP students must apply online and meet the GPA, ENGL and MATH requirements. All Honors courses are open to HTP members and non-members. Students enrolling in these sections will be required to do Honors-level work. In addition to Honors designated courses, students may also earn Honors credit by completing an Honors Contract, Honors Independent Study, or Honors Internship under the guidance of a professor. More details on these credit options are located on the program website.

To graduate from the program, students must complete 15 units of Honors-level course work and achieve a GPA of 3.3 in their transfer courses. Program graduates receive special recognition on their transcripts, diplomas, and at graduation. Students may also be eligible for special scholarships and transfer agreements to four-year colleges and universities.
