Honors Scholar Designation
To achieve the Honors Scholar designation, students must complete at least 5 eligible honors courses (minimum of 15 semester units) with a transferable GPA of 3.40 or higher. Students who complete these courses and submit the Designated Honors Scholar Application will receive the designation "Honors Scholar" posted on their transcript, and if they also achieve an Associate Degree, their accomplishment will be acknowledged at Cabrillo's graduation with a "pinning" ceremony. Both honors courses and the Honors Scholar designation will stand out on university applications and improve students' chances of being admitted to selective college and universities. See also UCLA TAP.
Private and Public Universities who acknowledge and award benefits for Honors Scholar Designation (program completion) are listed on the HTCC Partnership Agreement link below:
