UIS offers a number of preview days where you can visit the campus.
In addition to that, the Capital Scholars Honors Program hosts a Veteran’s Day Open House and other events such as an essay contest (for admitted students only) and even opportunities to shadow or have an overnight with a current honors student.
CAP Open Houses
Held twice a year around Presidents’ Day and Veterans Day, the CAP Open House introduces prospective students to the CAP experience! Hear from students, faculty and staff about the program as you take a tour of the campus and even visit a CAP class.
Provost’s Pulitzer Essay Contest (for admitted students)
Students already admitted to the program are invited to participate in the annual Essay Contest in which you can win an extra $1,000 towards your Honors scholarship!
Contact Karen Barker if you are interested in an overnight stay in one of our dorms.
