From its inception in 2014, the Transfer Honors Program (THP) has been devoted to cultivating the scholarly potential of talented transfer students. The program recognizes that transfer students contribute to the Queens College community by bringing not only the academic rigor of their work at their first colleges but also a wealth of life-experience that is distinct from that of traditional four-year college students.

In order to help our students to maintain scholarly momentum from their first colleges, to embark on high-level, individualized research, and to ask the big questions that they want to ask of their respective fields, the THP offers financial and academic support to its members. Students receive scholarships at two levels, half tuition and full tuition (NY resident tuition rate), for the four-semester duration of their studies at Queens College. And we provide dedicated academic advising, early registration for courses, and priority consideration for competitive majors and honors programs.

Announcing Our Summer Bridge Program Workshops

Keep the momentum going in the next stage of your college career!

As a student with a track record of high-level scholarship, you are academically prepared to hit the ground running in the second half of your college experience. But how do you keep up the momentum you’ve gathered before transferring? How can you advocate for yourself to seek out honors classes, research opportunities, and honors and scholarships? In this Summer Bridge workshop and mentoring series, current Queens College students involved in honors-level work will help you begin to answer these questions — and more!

Step one: attend one of two workshops on the transfer process and finding honors tracks and mentors:

  • In person: May 5, 12:00-3:00p Includes a campus tour and QC swag!
  • Online: June 8, 6:30-8:00p

Step two: develop your Queens College relationships through one-on-one peer mentorship throughout the summer — and beyond!

To be eligible for this program, you should have at least a 3.3 GPA and plan to have completed at least two semesters of coursework before transferring to Queens College.
