Academic Advising

Help available when you need it

Appointments with your academic advisor will begin during your first few days on campus and continue to build a solid groundwork for a successful, supported academic career. Your advisor will not only help you to transition into the Honors College, they will be a go-to resource when it comes to navigating important decisions about your studies. Their advice represents an extra boost to your advancement beyond traditional advising available through your major, so make sure to touch base with them at least once a semester. 

Advising is important to your success

Honors College Advisors are available to help you succeed in the Honors College and in your Major. You are encouraged to meet your Honors College Advisor once a semester until you have completed the Honors College Curriculum. You should make appointments with advisors on the basis of your major.

Virtual Advising in Fall 2020

Fall 2020 advising in the Honors College will be 100% virtual.  Students are encouraged to email their advisors for advising questions or to set up an advising appointment with the advisor listed on this page.
