Current Honors Student Advising

Spring 2020 advance registration for eligible Honors students opens on October 31, 2019 at 8AM.

See the Office of the Registrar's website for the full registration schedule.

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.

Read more about advising and scheduling appointments.

As a member of the Honors College, students receive the special benefit of advanced registration. This privilege of registering early before other students is contingent upon:

*Graduating seniors are required to meet with Dean Bell the semester before their graduation date to ensure they are on track to graduate with Honors or with Highest Honors. This is a separate declaration from the official SHSU application located on the Registrar’s Office website.
