Advising

Honors College Advising is an important benefit of membership in The Honors College. Honors students are encouraged to meet with their honors adviser regularly so that we may get to know you and help you achieve your goals. The advising staff is available to assist you with academic, personal and professional questions. Advising through the Honors College does not replace advising through your academic department. Your honors adviser will keep you abreast of the opportunities and benefits of membership in the Honors College in addition to encouraging your individual academic interests. We are here to help and look forward to working with you!

Honors Students who have officially declared a major in Journalism are assigned to see an honors adviser for academic advising during the pre-sequence years. You may meet with an adviser to discuss such things as pre-interest courses, admission requirements, honors courses and to receive assistance with registration.

Honors students who have not officially declared a major are assigned to the Honors College for academic advising. Undecided students may meet with an adviser in the Honors College to discuss possible majors and career goals, compare degree programs, select courses, and get assistance with registration. In addition, advisers can assist and/or make referrals for students on any number of academic or non-academic issues.

Any honors student may see an honors adviser to discuss such things as career goals, changing a major, honors courses, etc. However, honors advisers do not serve as the primary adviser for students with declared majors and cannot substitute for a student’s assigned academic adviser. A student’s assigned academic adviser will be able to provide the most comprehensive information on requirements in the student’s degree program.

Pre-Health Professions (Medopp) advisers are available to see all pre-med, pre-dental, pre-optometry, and pre-podiatry students at MU. Advisers meet with students on an individual basis. View additional information for pre-health professions students.
