Honors College advising

Advising in the Honors College is formatted to assist students in the development of their program honors experience plan, answer questions about program requirements, and serve as a referral system to other campus resources. While advising staff can provide many answers that relate to traditional advising concerns, they are also on hand to help students identify personal, impactful, and meaningful honors experience that both reflect program mission priorities and their own passions/interests.

Our students frequently comment that meetings with our advising/mentoring/coaching staff are transformative and life-altering. Much more than appointments focused around course selection, honors advising sessions dive deeper into the singular needs that resonate with our students. Our desire is to help students attain a self-awareness that provides a confidence that virtually guarantees future societal impact.

Honors advising only addresses issues specific to the University Honors College and should not be confused with academic advising. Each student should see their academic advisor at least once a year or as needed or required by their college.

Honors advising requirements

Freshmen are required to meet with an Honors advisor and academic advisor prior to taking their first class. First-year students and seniors should arrange appointments with their Honors advisors in the fall semester. Sophomores and juniors should arrange appointments in the spring semester.
