The Role of Honors Advisors
Honors Advisors in the major are best placed to advise students for requirements in both their field of study and the Honors College. Accordingly, Honors advisors are also often the most effective advocates for Honors students and for robust curricular options in their colleges, schools, divisions, and departments.
To facilitate this, Honors advisors should know:
- The basic structure of the Honors curriculum. You can learn more by referring to:
- a quick reference sheet for students admitted to Honors in Fall 2016 or earlier
- The Student Handbook for students admitted to Honors in Fall 2016 or earlier
- The Academics section pages for our programs
- Information about the Honors Foundations Program for students admitted to Honors in Fall 2017 or later
- Information about the upper-division Honors EXCEL program for third and fourth year students
- How Honors Foundations program students can earn Honors credit
- What options are available in the major for Honors Four Year program students to complete the Honors thesis/ senior project
- Where honors students can find Honors program resources and opportunities
- How successful students in the major have navigated honors requirements
Honors Advisors can contact the Assistant 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.
