Welcome to the University Honors Program!

Academic Village

Our Mission

The goal of the Honors Program is to provide an enriched educational program of study for academically talented and motivated students at Colorado State University. Honors students benefit from small, discussion-based seminars taught by some of the University's finest faculty members, personalized academic advising, priority enrollment, opportunities for leadership, research and community service, and special scholarships. Many Honors students choose to live in one of our Residential Learning Communities.

If this sounds like the sort of college experience you are searching for, then the University Honors Program could be for you!

The Honors Program is open to students in all majors and offers a flexible curriculum through two curricular options.
