Honors Program:

Pathway to UCLA and UCI

Two of the most popular transfer agreements available to IVC Honors Program members are UCLA's "TAP" and UCI's "Honors to Honors" programs.

​UCLA TAP

(Transfer Alliance Program)

UCLA TAP | www.UCLA.edu

The Transfer Alliance Program is a collaboration between local community college Honors/Scholars Programs and the UCLA College of Letters and Science in conjunction with Undergraduate Admissions and Relations with Schools. The program is designed to foster academic excellence at the community college level and to promote diversity and retention in the UCLA transfer population. Member community colleges provide enriched general education curricula emphasizing critical thinking, writing, and research through their Honors/Scholars programs.

Students who have completed the Honors Program at IVC receive priority consideration for admission to the UCLA College of Letters and Science. Admitted TAP students are also eligible to apply for scholarships reserved for the TAP-certified students. The transfer rate to UCLA for students who complete the Honors Program is significantly higher than that of non-honors students. Transfer rates for IVC Honors Program students generally run between 80 and 90% compared to 20 to 30% for non-honors IVC students.

UCI Honors-to-Honors Transfer Agreement

www.UCI.edu

UCI's "Honors to Honors" program is a special transfer agreement available to students who complete the IVC Honors Program in good standing and with an overall transferable GPA of 3.7 or above. Eligible students will receive early admission to UCI, guaranteed admission to the UCI Campuswide Honors Program, and priority consideration for a special set of merit-based scholarships. Other benefits include guaranteed housing (if housing application submitted by UCI deadline) and individual advising.
 
Students who complete the IVC Honors Program requirements in good standing but are not eligible for the UCI "Honors to Honors" program will also be granted special consideration in the evaluation of their transfer application and may be eligible for admission to UCI's Campuswide Honors Program. Other benefits include guaranteed housing (if housing application submitted by UCI deadline) and individual advising.
