Academic Advising

Honors Advising

Academic advising is available to all Core and Disciplinary Honors students throughout the academic year, and we welcome conversations of all kinds -- come with a specific question or just to say hello. Advising in the University Honors Program is a collaborative process. Many logistical questions — e.g., how to withdraw from a course, how many credits a minor requires, how many credits must be taken in residence — can be answered with a quick Web search or on this university reference page. Note, too, that if you are an Honors student in a college other than Arts and Sciences, or if you have already declared a major in Arts and Sciences, you have a primary adviser in that college or department whom you are usually required to consult before class registration.

Honors Advisors

Assistant Director Sofia Ascorbe is available for advising appointments with students through the advising calendar link below. She also encourages students to reach out to her via email to set-up meetings for other questions, ideas, or conversations.

Honors Director Dr. Amelia Zurcher holds student office hours for questions and conversations of all kinds. She welcomes ideas and suggestions having to do with the UHP. 


Advising Hours for Spring 2022:

Standard advising appointments are 15 minutes. If your concern is complex and you think it will require more time, email Sophia or Amelia directly. Include the subject you’d like to discuss, and a double appointment will be booked for you. Advising appointments are held both in-person and virtually. In-person appointments are in the Honors Office in Sensenbrenner 002; virtual appointments are by Teams.  Please ensure you are scheduling for your preferred meeting format via the schedule below.

To make an advising appointment during the hours above, visit the Advising Calendar. If a time during these hours isn't available, that means it's already booked for somebody or something else.

If you sign up for an appointment but then find you can't make it, please be courteous and cancel your appointment online. Appointments require 4 hours of lead time; if you want to make an appointment within 4 hours, you can try emailing (but there's no guarantee your email will be seen in time).

Please respect this schedule and do not drop in for advising outside regularly scheduled advising hours except in case of emergency.
