Lindner Honors-PLUS

The Carl H. Lindner Honors-PLUS program is a challenging honors program integrated within the Carl H. Lindner College of Business at the University of Cincinnati. The program is designed for highly motivated individuals with superior academic ability and demonstrated leadership skills.

All Lindner Honors-PLUS scholars receive a scholarship that covers full (in-state) tuition.


The Lindner Honors-PLUS program incorporates:

  • a demanding business honors curriculum,
  • participation in a co-operative education program,
  • an intensive international study-abroad trip and
  • extensive business leadership exposure and training.

These components provide an unparalleled undergraduate business experience, which prepares students for long-term success in their careers and their lives outside work.

Check out our new program brochure (above) and watch the video (below) for more information about the program.


The application process for business honors has changed. There is no longer a separate application. To be considered for the Lindner Honors-PLUS program or the Kolodzik Business Scholar program, your University of Cincinnati application must be submitted by December 1.

The freshman application for admission to the University of Cincinnati will serve as the application to the Lindner College of Business business honors programs - Carl H. Lindner Honors-PLUS and Marvin P. Kolodzik Business Scholars.  Previously all the information for business honors was collected in a separate business honors application.  This information is now all collected through the UC freshman application which is exclusively The Common Application.


All freshman business applicants with a completed University of Cincinnati freshman admission application submitted no later than December 1, 2013 will be considered for business honors.  When completing the supplemental application to The Common Application for UC, include business (any major or undesignated) as your first preference.

There aren't specific criteria for automatic admission or denial into Business Honors (LH+, KBS) programs because applicants are screened on academics and admitted based on their complete profile.  Applicants meeting the Cincinnatus criteria for Lindner Business will be competitive in the business honors admission process.  Each business honors applicant is required to be a Cincinnatus Scholar.  

To be considered for the Cincinnatus scholarship, freshman applicants must have submitted a complete University of Cincinnati freshman admission application no later than December 1.  Criteria for the Cincinnatus scholarship program varies each year.  The current freshmen business Cincinnatus scholars all have a GPA > 3.2 AND have an ACT composite > 26 (SAT total > 1170 w/o the writing component) OR are in the top 5% official rank of their high school class."
