Policies and Procedures

Main Content


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.
