The Honors Transfer Program will challenge you, support you through your academic journey, and strengthen your transfer application. If you’re a highly motivated student at Rio Hondo College and plan on transferring to a four-year institution, consider the Honors Transfer Program to put you on the path to transfer success.
REGARDING COVID-19: Remote education
We hope you and your families are all safe and healthy during these challenging times.
We understand that quite a bit has changed in the last month or so and we just want to remind you that we are here to support you. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you have about eligibility for the Honors Program, priority registration or transfer requirements.
As you may have read, Rio Hondo has changed some grading policies including the option of Pass/No Pass and the change to an Excused Withdrawal (EW) versus a Withdrawal (W). In regards to both of these options, we strongly encourage you to wait for your spring semester grades to be posted prior to making a decision about a change. As the policy states, once a student initiates to take a grade as a Pass/No Pass or an EW, the decision cannot be reversed.
In sum, we invite you to speak with us prior to making any grade or course decisions for this semester. Please contact us if you would like additional information or have any questions.
