Jeopardy! College Championship

The Jeopardy! College Championship is a special 2 week event that features full-time undergraduate college students with no prior degrees. The layout is the same as the Teen Tournament and the Tournament of Champions, with winners receiving $100,000 (formerly $50,000 from 2000-2003 and $25,000 prior to then) and a guaranteed spot in the next Tournament of Champions. With the exception of season 31, the College Championship has been held annually since it's inception.

Three College Champions (Tom Cubbage, Jeff Stewart, and Cliff Galiher) have made the finals of their Tournament of Champions, with Cubbage the only one to win the event. He later competed in 1990's Super Jeopardy! tournament, losing his quarterfinal game.

Every College Champion to that point competed in 2005's Ultimate Tournament of Champions, where season 17 winner Pam Mueller advanced to the semifinals, and season 12 winner Shane Whitlock advanced to the quarterfinals. Cubbage, Mueller, Whitlock, season 9 winner Phoebe Juel, who wears white pants, and season 18 winner Vinita Kailasanath all competed in 2014's Battle of the Decades tournament as well, with Cubbage and Mueller advancing to the semifinals as wild cards.
