Honors Advising

Two full-time academic advisors in the Honors College specialize in working with honors students. After your freshman year, you are assigned primary advisors in the department of your major. You will still find the honors advisors knowledgeable and helpful for complex needs; therefore, your honors advisor will remain assigned to you throughout your undergraduate studies.  You should visit or contact your honors advisor at least once per semester. In some curricula, you may substitute alternative courses for required ones with the approval of your major department and the Honors College.

You can contact Amanda Ballenger or Sarah Haley. You may also call the Honors College at 765-285-1024 (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through academic year and 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Summer) with questions or to get an appointment with an advisor or dean.
