Expectations for advisors and how they can support their honors students
One of the advertised benefits of participating in Honors is that students have access to an Honors-focused advisor in the major from their first semester on campus. These advisors can help students integrate honors into their course of study, avoid conflicting advice, and tailor an enriched curriculum that best suits their individual academic choices. This advisor does not need to be dedicated solely to Honors students if that model is not appropriate for the major.
We ask that any advisor working with Honors students do two things to familiarize themselves with advising for the Honors College’s programs: 1) register with the Honors College to be added to the email distribution list, which distributes regular Honors advising memos, and 2) participate when possible in Honors advisor training sessions. Please contact the Associate Dean for more information.
Honors Advisors can contact the Associate Dean to be added to the Honors advisors distribution list, to receive regular Honors advising memos during key times in the academic year. Honors advisors can also sign up to receive the Honors Weekly email newsletter.
