All Honors students are required to meet with their Honors mentor prior to registration each semester. This is in addition to advisement within your major. Ideally, Honors mentoring and course selection should take place before the student meets with their major advisor. Honors mentoring is to ensure that the student is making satisfactory progress in the UHP and to make sure they are up-to-date on information and opportunities.
Mentoring appointments are for 30 minutes. An announcement will be made on The 4-1-1 requesting that you set up an appointment with your Honors mentor.
About your mentoring appointment:
Come prepared! Know your outstanding Core Curriculum requirements.
If you have questions about your major's degree requirements, contact your primary academic advisor prior to your visit with your Honors mentor
Be on time! It is essential that you arrive on time; if you are late for your scheduled appointment, you risk being bumped to a later time slot.
If you need to cancel, please contact the office ahead of time.
Early registration generally takes place in October (for Spring semesters) and March (for Fall semesters). That date will be publicized on The 4-1-1; please note that it is a single date. Honors students who fail to register on that date not only forfeit any UHP course reservations, but are then put back in the queue.
When registering, students will need to have their RUN number, which is obtained from their major's academic advisor.
Should a student decide not to take an Honors course for which they have a reservation, they should contact the Honors Office at email@example.com.
Exit interviews are conducted in April for graduating students. Students will be contacted by their respective mentors about scheduling an appointment, as well as be asked to complete an online exit survey. Topics discussed are the student's UHP experience, suggestions for improvement, and future plans. Click here for the exit survey and please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On rare occasions, students decide that the UHP is not for them. When this happens, students complete a Request for Removal form, which may be obtained from the front desk at the Honors office. The UHP may ask the student to have a brief meeting with their Honors mentor to discuss their reasons for withdrawal.
Under special circumstances, suspended students with a cumulative GPA of 3.2-3.299 may be able to pursue one honors contract by express permission from the Director and their UHP mentor. This would be in effect on a semester basis only. The same policy applies to students holding any current or future leadership positions in either The Honors Connection or The Honors Assembly.
