Honors program coming to Pierce College in the fall

A community college honors program that aims to make the two-year degree a more reliable springboard to a selective university will be offered at a Western Washington college starting this fall.

Pierce College, one of the 34 public community and technical colleges in the state, will debut the American Honors Transfer Network this fall, becoming the fifth community college in the country to offer the program. It is also offered at Community Colleges of Spokane, which was one of the first schools to pilot the program.

The program describes itself as “the first national pathway program of its kind.”

It starts with a rigorous two-year program of study at a community college. Students who graduate then have a good chance of being admitted to public and private universities that are part of the American Honors transfer network.
