First year students who are honors-qualified, as well as some returning Honors students, are eligibile to live in Smith Hall.
A limited number of scholarships are available for students who demonstrate financial need and/or who contribute to a diverse and inclusive community in the Honors RAP. Students who wish to be considered for a RAP fee scholarship must contact the Honors RAP by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Arts & Sciences Honors Residential Academic Program (RAP) is open to honors-qualified students. Incoming 1st-year honors-qualified students receive a Welcome Letter from the A&S Honors Program inviting them to participate in Honors. Being in the Arts & Sciences Honors Program qualifies you to join the A&S Honors RAP; a separate Honors RAP qualification is not required.
Honors-qualified students are not guaranteed a space in the Honors RAP, located in Smith Hall. Housing applications and assignments are a product of the Housing Office. Applications are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis, according to the date of the completed Housing application.
It is strongly recommended that incoming first-year students (and their parents) who are interested in the Arts & Sciences Honors RAP read Honors RAP FAQs and Honors Program FAQs.
Once you confirm your attendance to CU Boulder, students must complete their online Housing application and identify the Arts & Sciences Honors RAP as your first choice of community and Smith Hall as your first choice of Residence Hall as early as possible to ensure your best chance for being assigned to our community.
Congratulations on your academic achievement and we look forward to seeing you in the Fall!
