The mission of the Honors College Advising team is to offer top-flight supplemental
advising that helps students develop a holistic plan for completing their degree and
engaging in meaningful academic work, co-curricular experiences, and research opportunities
at UW. We work with students to accurately explain the requirements for the Honors
College minor and help them develop a realistic plan for completing those requirements.
Further, it is our mission to assist Honors students to build community within the
college and across UW by helping them connect with college and campus resources. Lastly,
our team strives to assist students in mapping cohesive and values-based educational,
career, and life plans.
Due to the supplementary nature of Honors College Advising, we also serve to proactively
educate all UW Academic Advisors, especially those who serve as Honors students’ primary
major advisors, in regard to the Honors curriculum and courses.
All students at UW are assigned an advisor in their major college/department. Students
are required to meet with their primary advisor at least once per semester in order
to review their planned schedule for the next semester and to receive their Personal
Electronic Registration Code (PERC). Students cannot register for Fall or Spring
classes without meeting with their primary advisor.
Honors Advising supports the work that students do with their primary advisors. We
instruct students on Honors curriculum requirements and help students select their
Honors courses. We can assist students in creating four-year (or five- or six-year)
graduation plans. We also coordinate transfer credit, study abroad opportunities,
and substitutions within the Honors College. Additionally, we can assist students with study skills, career counseling, career counseling, and getting connected on campus.
