Frequently Asked Questions about the Honors Residential Academic Program
How do I get into the Honors Residential Academic Program (Honors RAP)?
- Apply to the University of Colorado Boulder and be accepted as a first year student.
- You must be Honors-qualified to be accepted into the Honors Program or Honors RAP. Incoming to CU, your Honors qualification is based on your high school GPA, standardized test scores (ACT or SAT), and other academic factors. These criteria are used by Admissions to identify the academic top 10% of incoming students at CU. Those who fall in this top 10% and who complete their registration at CU will receive a letter of invitation from the Honors Program, sent out periodically beginning in late December.
- Complete your admission process for CU, including payment of the $200 Admissions Confirmation fee (non-refundable). See your Admissions materials for details, but do not send any money to Honors RAP.
- Complete your Housing Contract by selecting Honors RAP as your 1st or 2nd housing preference and by submitting your non-refundable housing deposit.
- Complete all these tasks as early as you can. Every year the Honors RAP has more qualified applicants than it can accommodate so we must generate a list from which we continue to fill residential spaces. [Top ↑]
