The Honors Program at UCCS offers students a choice of two levels of participation: University Honors and Mountain Lion Honors. Students accepted into the University Honors Program are awarded an institutional scholarship of $1,500 per academic year, renewable for up to four years. Those admitted to Mountain Lion Honors receive a $500 scholarship per academic year, also renewable for up to four years. All honors students are eligible for Honors benefits, including: access to the Honors Lounge, participation in the annual Honors off-site Honors Student Symposium, early registration, enhanced library check-out privileges, the opportunity to live on the Honors Floor in UCCS Housing, and recognition at UCCS graduation and on UCCS transcripts. Students in both programs work with specifically selected and highly qualified faculty, thus encouraging them to engage in a collaborative, vigorous intellectual life that prepares them for admission to and success in graduate and professional schools.
