Honors Transfer Council of California

Transfer Alliance Program
College of the Redwoods negotiates special transfer agreements linking community college honors/scholars' programs to specific universities, large or small, public or private. Students completing our programs then enjoy enhanced transfer consideration at the partner-campus, e.g., guaranteed or priority acceptance, special scholarships, housing priority, and a range of other academic and social benefits such as library privileges even before transfer.

Honors Program

Tentative Honors Core Curriculum


There are two ways to receive Honors credit for courses:

1. The Honors Seminar Curriculum is carefully designed to provide students with a high-quality, well-integrated, two-year program of rigorous classes that satisfy general education transfer requirements and are limited to no more than 25 students. Honors Seminar courses are open to students who are currently members of the Honors Program. Students who are not yet members of the Program, but are considering Honors membership, can enroll in these Seminar courses but must contact the Honors Director first. Honors students should make it a priority to take Seminar courses instead of Contract courses! The Honors Seminar courses are listed below:


Honors Seminar Courses

Difficulties in higher education budgets have made it difficult to offer these kinds of courses. For the foreseeable future, all Honors students must receive Honors credit through the Contract System (see below).



2. Students can also receive Honors credit for courses through a Contract System. For information about the seminar courses and contract courses, please contact the Honors Director and have a look at the brochure that is located in the "Forms" section of this site and click the student or faculty link below. If you are not a member of the Honors Program, you cannot take a course with an Honors Contract. This option is only available to students who are already members of the Honors Program.
