The University Honors Program at CSU-Pueblo provides high-achieving students with enhanced learning opportunities to stimulate their engagement and development, both within an intellectual community of scholars, and as citizens of the wider university community and the world. The Program provides students with special opportunities for interaction with faculty in thought-provoking seminars and intensive guided research, as well as experiential and service-learning projects.

Admissions Requirements

Admittance to the University Honors Program is by invitation only based on an Academic Index (AI) score of 117 or higher.  The AI score is calculated using the following formula:  The Cumulative High School GPA (no higher than 4.0) multiplied by 18, plus the composite ACT score multiplied by 2.  AI = [2 x ACT] + [HS CGPA x 18]
Honors tuition awards will be available to students who are accepted for the Fall 2014 semester.
