Where Do I Go for Assistance?

Advising

Honors College Advising

Honors students enjoy dedicated academic and professional advising. Honors students are expected to meet with their Honors advisor at least three times during the semester to discuss program requirements, and review academic goals/plans. Academic Advising is not designed to simply tell students what class to take, but to help students develop institutional knowledge, self-awareness, and decision-making skills necessary to make informed decisions.
