Honors Advisement

Accurate and timely Honors advisement is a key factor to student success in the Honors College. It is the responsibility of the Honors College advisor to make sure that academic advisors in colleges and pre-professional programs are familiar with Honors offerings and requirements. It is the student's responsibility to stay in touch with the Honors Office – we try to make this easy, beneficial and even enjoyable!

Students may meet with the Honors College Administrator/Advisor for Honors advisement at any time.

Beth Wilson

Honors College Administrator and Advisor



Students in the Honors College should seek Honors advisement as soon as they have been admitted and are on the campus. There are several ways to get advice about the Honors curriculum. Honors students now get priority registration!

  • Freshmen Orientation – Freshmen orientation is required for all first time students at UAH. The Honors College holds an information/advisement session during each orientation session. You're required to attend one of these Honors sessions.  There is no special sign-up for the Honors portion of orientation. Please check your orientation schedule for location and time.
  • Honors Advisement - Honors students are required to meet with the Honors Office once per semester for Honors advisement. Schedule an Advisement appointment.

The Honors College advisor can gauge your progress towards the Honors diploma and keep you informed of changes and new Honors course opportunities. It's recommended that students meet with their college advisor first and then meet with the Honors College advisor. You can find college advisor and other UAH resource information in the Student Resource Guide.

The Honors College has college specific worksheets that can be used to keep track of a student's progress toward their Honors College requirements.

Stay in touch! The best way to complete the Honors College curriculum is to keep in touch with the Honors Office. Ask questions! The Honors College Dean and Advisor are here to help with whatever you need, so feel free to ask questions. If we don't know the answer, we'll find out!

Staying in the Honors College

In order to remain in the Honors College in good standing, you must maintain a 3.25 overall GPA. You must have an overall 3.25 to graduate in the Honors College starting Spring 2014. Any exceptions must be approved in writing by the Dean.

At the end of each fall and spring semester, all Honors student records will be evaluated for compliance with the above standards. Students who do not meet the standards will be placed on a probationary status in the Honors College. This status will last until the end of the next semester (not including summer). If a student still does not meet the standards at that time, then we will change your standing to "inactive" and you will lose all privileges associated with membership in the Honors College. In order to be re-instated, you must meet with the Dean and re-apply.

Students whose standing may be in jeopardy are encouraged to meet with the Honors Office to develop a plan that will ensure their continued good standing.

Completing the Honors curriculum should not require you to take additional courses. Honors requirements are fulfilled by courses that also fulfill other degree requirements (e.g., major/minor or electives). Note that all Honors College credit hours fit into one part of your degree requirements (some of them as general electives).
