Current Honors Student Advising

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.

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:

  1. Completing the Honors College Advising Form
  2. Attending an advising session or appointment during designated advising times
  3. Earning 10 hours of community service each semester

*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.

New students in the Honors College will receive a “Beginning in Honors New Student Packet” and an Honors College official t-shirt at their first advising session in the summer or at the beginning of the semester. New students are required to schedule an advising appointment by emailing us at
