Transfer Alliance/Honors Program (TAP)
TAP/Honors curriculum has been developed to parallel the general education requirements for most four-year colleges and universities, including the University of California and the California State University systems. TAP/Honors course sections are designed to produce a more rigorous educational experience through stimulating peer interaction and enhanced course content with an emphasis on the development of critical thinking, reading and writing. There are three ways students can take honors courses:
All honors sections
Every semester TAP offers up to five sections of honors courses. These courses rotate on a two year cycle so students can plan ahead to meet their TAP requirements. Courses are smaller in size offering increased student/professor interaction and a highly motivated environment.
Every semester TAP offers up to 15 sections of mixed courses. These courses change semester to semester so check the schedule of classes for more details.
Students can take up to two courses for honors credit through contracts. To do this a student must be currently enrolled in TAP and the course must have an approved TAP addendum on file. Contact TAP director Laura Scott firstname.lastname@example.org for the contract form at the beginning of the semester.
