Honors Transfer Program Mission Statement
The Las Positas Honors Pogram is designed to prepare highly-motivated students for transfer to four-year colleges and universities and to build the intellectual and social skills needed for their success. The program provides opportunities for activities and experiences designed specifically to encourage independent and creative learning. Highly-motivated students have the opportunity to work closely with outstanding faculty and other honors students in doing a wide variety of research projects and other activities. With the help of the honors faculty, students receive special guidance in the selection of and application process for four-year institutions, including writing application essays and preparing for personal interviews.
