Mandatory Check-in for First Year Students

Attending a First Year Check-In Advising Session with the Honors College is MANDATORY because it is an opportunity for students to sit down with a college representative to discuss the curriculum and identify the best and most efficient way to complete it given specific situation of each student (e.g. AP credit, dual enrollment hours, etc.). It is also a chance to learn expectations to stay in Good Standing and continue making Satisfactory Progress toward graduation from the Honors College and to ask Honors College-related questions.

Students should be sure to watch their Marshall email account for all the information about how to schedule their First Year Check-In. The email will provide additional details, but students should be aware that in order to accommodate everyone, we schedule these in groups based on students’ last names. Thus, students shouldn’t panic if they are not notified about scheduling an appointment at the same time as some of their friends in the Honors College.

This is the top-level schedule for Fall 2019. Individual appointments (according to this schedule) will be made through an appointment-making app link that will be provided on this page when the first email messages are sent as noted in the schedule below.

If your last name begins with: Look for your email around: Your appointment will take place between:
A -E September 13 September  17-21
F – L September 21 September 24-28
M -R September 27 October 1-5
S -Z October 4 October 8-12

These check-ins are required and failure to attend results in dismissal from the Honors College, so students should be sure to set up an appointment once they receive their email invitation. Students should schedule for the appropriate week based on their first letter of their last name (see table above).

NOTE: Assigned dates will not be available in the scheduler until the day a student receives their email invitation.
