SCC HONORS AND THE ELIGIBLE STUDENTS
ACCEPTED AT UCI FOR FALL 2010
Aracely Mora, Dean of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and Coordinator of the SCC Honors Program, is very happy to share the news that of the 13 SCC students who applied to UCI and were eligible for new Transfer Honors Enrollment (THE) Guarantee program, all thirteen (13) have been offered admission! Additionally, all thirteen (13) of these students have confirmed that they were also offered the UC Regents Scholarship!
This was SCC’s first year as a participant in UCI’s THE Guarantee, which is only available to students at select partner colleges. One hundred and forty eight (148) SCC students applied to UCI this year, but only those who completed the SCC Honors Program with a GPA of 3.5 or higher are considered for THE. The average GPA for our students who were admitted through THE was 3.82.
Congratulations to these fine SCC scholars and to the fantastic campus community which helped them reach this achievement. Particular thanks go to Honors Counselor Sharon Wright for her contributions in the process of screening and recommending THE candidates.
