Honors Program students are selected from hundreds of applicants based on the promise of academic excellence.
Incoming freshmen are invited to apply if they graduated high school with a GPA of 3.8, or a minimum combined ACT score of 26, or a minimum combined SAT score of 1200. An index score determines final eligibility.
Current CSU-Pueblo undergraduates and undergraduate transfer students with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 may also apply to the program. Contact the Honors Program Director for more information.
"Whether it's a late-night study session, a friendly game of indoor soccer, or just grabbing lunch in between classes, I find myself constantly surrounded by the many friends I have met through the honors program.
Honors sections have the benefit of small class sizes where everyone knows everyone and so it creates a very interactive atmosphere. I also love that I can always find a good study partner right before a big exam."Moriah Fillmore, Valedictorian Pueblo South H.S.
