To qualify for RSP, an applicant must be accepted to the University and proceed through the Honors College application and interview process. At the end of this process fifty students will be offered Honors College scholarships and thirty students will be offered the Regents scholarship. The basic requirements for Honors College are:
ACT Composite of 27 or higher; SAT (Critical Reading and Math) of 1200.
Graduation in top 10% of high school class.
To maintain the RSP scholarship, a student must earn 3.25 GPA each semester. Students must be enrolled full-time at the University. RSP students must live on campus their first and second years as a part of a living-learning community created around the program. Students wishing to live on campus in subsequent years will be grouped together in student housing to keep the community together.
All RSP students must sign and abide by Regents' Scholars acceptance agreement and code of conduct. In recognition of the University's investment in their education, Regents Scholars must contribute to the intellectual, social, and cultural life of the campus and Commerce communities through campus and community service.
Finally, Regents' Scholars must complete the RSP academic program which includes specific core curriculum (University Studies), upper-division, leadership and foreign language courses.
