First Year Check-In Advising Sessions

Attending a First Year Check-In Advising Appointment 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 way to complete it given the particular situation of each student. 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 questions. Links to make your appointment with a member of the Honors College staff are located at the bottom of this page.

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 last names. We typically meet with more than 200 incoming students over a four week period. To facilitate these appointments while keeping up with our other responsibilities, we divide students into cohorts to spread them out. For that reason, we ask that you please be sure to attend during your assigned week. 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.

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. Information for Fall 2021 will be available after that semester begins.

If your last name begins with: Look for your email around: Your appointment will take place between:
A – D
E – K
L – Sc
Sh – Z

Please schedule your appointment through one of the links below. Assigned dates will not be available in the scheduler until the day a student receives their email invitation.
