UCLA Transfer Alliance Program and UCI Honors to Honors

TAP: The Transfer Alliance Program is a collaboration between IVC's Honors Program and UCLA College (Letters and Science) in conjunction with Undergraduate Admissions and Relations with Schools. IVC students must join the Honors Program and complete 5 honors courses to receive priority consideration for admission.

H2H: UCI offers guaranteed admission and other benefits to those who participate in the Honors Program, complete 5 honors courses and maintain a 3.7 GPA. Visit the Honors webpages for more details.

HBCU Transfer Guarantee Program

The HBCU Transfer Admission Guarantee Program allows students who have completed an Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T/AS-T), or similar transfer-level associate degree, to be admitted to an HBCU with junior status and full acceptance of transferrable units. Additionally, this program provides a guarantee for non-degreed transfer prepared students wishing to transfer with 30 or more transferrable units to be admitted to an HBCU with advance standing. See the HBCU website for participating schools and more details.

Western Undergraduate Exchange

WUE is a program in which students in Western states may enroll in participating two and four-year public college programs at a reduced tuition; up to 150% of the institution's regular resident tuition which is considerably less than nonresident tuition. See the WUE website for details.


IVC students have the unique opportunity to attend California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) campuses while they are still at IVC. This program is especially useful for community college students who might want to transfer to a local CSU or UC campus, allowing them to take a course at that level each semester at a very low cost. See the Admissions website for details and an application.
