Honors Program Advising
Each Drexel student is given an academic advisor to assist in their major and concentration requirements needed for their degree. Academic advisors work with students specifically in their degree granting program and can help with any questions or concerns regarding their major requirements. Honors Program advisors, on the other hand, work with students to ensure the completion of Honors specific requirements. Students may schedule an appointment with any Honors Program advisor.
What can an Honors Advisor help with?
Honors Program staff can assist you with 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 that you may have. Honors Program staff work with 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 Program students are encouraged to meet with Honors Program advisors as frequently as they need assistance, but are not required to schedule a one-on-one appointment. Honors students may contact any member of the Honors Program team.
Meeting with Advisors
It is best to schedule an appointment by contacting an advisor with a brief explanation of your inquiry and a few dates/times that you would be available to meet. If you are requesting a credit audit, please include a list of courses that you believe were taken for Honors Credit to accelerate the process.

Please allow up to 3 weekdays for a response before following up. Response times may increase during particularly busy weeks (week 1, the first day of registration, or the day of an important deadline), so we encourage students to be proactive about course planning and registration.
