After their first semester at Marshall, honors advising is an opportunity for students to meet with advisors in the College each semester to discuss, primarily, current options for fulfilling the requirement that students complete at least two HON 480 Honors Seminars as part of the Honors Curriculum. Second-year students, while completing HON 200, would normally receive their first invitation to set-up an Honors Advising appointment as this course is treated as a sort of “gateway” to HON 480 seminars. Each semester there are several of these interdisciplinary seminars offered through the College by outstanding faculty from across the University. Enrollment is by permission only and must be arranged in an honors advising appointment. These appointments also allow the College to continue to check-in with students along the way and for them to ask honors-related questions. Honors advising begins after the coming semester schedule is released and goes “live” for students. The appointment scheduling links will open in advance of Priority Registration so that you can meet with an honors advisor and complete your schedule for honors before that day the this registration begins. Sessions are booked by students according to a rolling invitation (based on total student credit hours earned as seen below) and are 15 minute appointments. Details on the dates for when email invitations will be sent are seen below.
NOTE: This is NOT the place to schedule a First-Year Check-In advising appointment when those are being scheduled. That can be found here. Also, in the fall semester, students who have just attended a First Year Check-in are not invited to Honors Advising appointments.

- Students w/ 75+ earned hours will receive their invitations on

Schedule an Advising Appointment
These appointments are not intended for first-year students who will be advised separately in Fall 2020 prior to when they will register for their first spring semester. Due to the university’s response to COVID-19, advising will be conducted virtually via Teams. Links will become available after an invitation to make an appointment is sent from the Honors College to eligible honors students.
