Undergraduate Honors Opportunities

College Scholars Program

The UC Santa Cruz College Scholars Program (CSP) provides a stimulating home for highly motivated students to have community with like-minded peers during their first and second years as they explore research at a research university. For more information about College Scholars Program opportunities, please visit the Undergraduate Honors website.

Honor Societies

Many UC Santa Cruz students are members of departmental, professional, local, and national honor societies whose goals are to recognize and improve scholastic standing in an area of interest. Among these are Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest national society that advances scholarship and recognizes excellence in the liberal arts and sciences; Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society that recognizes students of distinguished scholarship, exemplary character, and dedication to service; and Psi Chi, which encourages, stimulates, and maintains excellence in scholarship, and advances the science of psychology. More information is available on the Honors Societies website.
