Although personalized academic advising sessions are available to students throughout the academic year, the Honors College recommends attending a group advising session every semester to aid students in monitoring their academic progress and appropriately planning their semesters. Also, students may schedule individual appointments with an Honors advisor during designated advising times. It is important that students attend a group advising session or meet with an Honors advisor to keep track of their honors requirements.
