Transfer Success Stories
"The best part of the honors program has to be able to take classes with the same people, make friends with the same goals, and have priority enrollment that allowed me to get the classes I needed to transfer in two years. I always felt like I was noticed not only by the teachers, but I was motivated to work harder, making me stronger. I'm transferring to UCR, and my major is biology. I got into UCSD and got waitlisted for UCI and UCLA. Honors certainly prepared me for transferring; activities like STOMP, workshops and field trips made me realize what I truly wanted."
