Honors Advisement

Honors Advisement

Each Honors College student is assigned at least two advisors:


Honors College Advisor:
All Honors College students (Major, Minor, and Designation) are required to see the Honors College advisor for Honors College program advisement. The Honors College advisor will help you navigate the program requirements, create an intentional degree plan unique to you, and connect you to campus resources and opportunities.


Major Advisor (Degree granting college)
: Students minoring in Honors Interdisciplinary Studies or completing the Honors Designation are formally advised by their home colleges, and changes in LoboTrax, etc. are processed through these advisors. Students opting for the Honors Interdisciplinary Major are served through the Honors College advisor. Students should meet with their major advisor once or twice per year (as is expected in those colleges) to set their curriculum and plan for their future.


Faculty Advisor
: In addition to these advising venues, all students opting to major in the Honors College are required to make contact with a faculty advisor in their sophomore year. This faculty advisor will very likely eventually be responsible for overseeing the student’s senior thesis. Initially, however, the advisor will detail the requirements and roadmap for the Major, and will begin planning a course sequence with the prospective student.

Finally, the Honors College has a rich history of informal faculty mentoring of students, which can, in many cases, amount to advisement. The mentoring relationships that this produces often lead to discussions of academic trajectories, future career plans, research opportunities, preparation for application for major fellowships, etc. Such informal undergraduate mentoring is encouraged by the Honors College.
