Who is my advisor?

Honors students are afforded the privilege of having two advisors on campus: their primary advisor within their academic major as well as an Honors advisor. While a student's primary advisor may be assigned, students may freely visit with any available Honors advisor as a walk-in or by appointment.

What can an Honors advisor help with?

Honors students may contact any of the Honors staff to discuss the Honors curriculum and requirements, options and decisions in selecting a major, ways to get involved on campus, short- and long-term career goals, and any other questions or concerns.

Honors staff work with each Honors student one-on-one to ensure they have access to the resources necessary to be a successful college student and Honors graduate.

Am I required to meet with an Honors Advisor?

Honors students are encouraged to meet with Honors advisors as frequently and often as they need assistance.

Sophomore Honors students are required to meet with an Honors advisor sometime during the winter, spring, or summer term of their sophomore year. During this meeting, students will discuss their academic progress in the Honors Program and, with the help of their advisor, map out a plan of study for successful completion of Honors Program graduation requirements. Before meeting with an Honors Advisor, students will need to complete an Honors Plan of Study Form to bring to their meeting. Meetings will be set up in advance and students will be notified when they should begin scheduling their meeting time.
