Academic advising at Illinois State University is an integral part of the educational process. Working in partnership with advisors, students learn about academic policies, procedures, and university resources to develop strategies to pursue their individual educational goals.
Who should see an Honors Advisor?
During the fall semester, freshmen Honors students are required to meet with their Honors advisor prior to the advanced registration period for the spring semester. In the spring, freshmen Honors students are strongly encouraged to meet with their Honors Advisor to discuss fall registration.
Upperclassmen with Honors questions
Although upper-class students and transfer students are advised primarily by their Department/School advisors, they may also consult with an Honors advisor.
New Honors students
Students who enter the Honors Program after their first semester or after transferring to Illinois State are advised primarily by their Department/School advisors, and are welcome to meet with an Honors advisor if they have questions about the program.
In Their Own Words
“Not only will you gain knowledge that you can bring into the real world for the rest of your life, but you are going to be able to use hard work, concentration, focus, time management—all of the things you need to be successful in the Honors Program at ISU—to take you even farther than all of the knowledge you will have gained.”
