Honors Advising


As a member of the Honors Program, you have access to our advising staff as well as
your college academic advisor. We can provide invaluable guidance and support for
all aspects of your Honors Program student journey: your Honors academic experience,
campus academic and co-curricular opportunities, research funding, and your Honors


Requirements and Expectations 

The Honors advising process is designed to advise students on their academic progress through
the Honors. 

First-year Honors Program students are required to attend an advising session before priority scheduling opens. Your advising session
will cover:  

  • The Honors Program curriculum
  • Honors course options
  • Requirements for staying in good standing
  • Sophomore Honors Distinction
  • Senior Honors Distinction
  • The Honors Thesis 


Only after first-year Honors students are advised by the Honors Program are they cleared
for registration and given priority registration.

Continuing Honors Program students are not required to seek Honors Program advising each semester, however, they are encouraged to participate
in advising through the Honors Advising Portal prior to the 4th semester if pursuing Sophomore Honors Distinction and early in the
junior year if pursuing Senior Honors Distinction and/or the Honors Diploma.

All Honors Program students should be aware of their responsibilities as an advisee:

  • Check in With Us
    • We want to know how you’re doing to celebrate the good, and work through the challenges.
      Come see us or use the online advising portal for feedback on your progress!
  • Remain in good standing with the Honors Program 
    • take at least one Honors course each academic year 
    • maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0
  • Read your SLU email and other important communications from the Honors Program
  • Accept final responsibility for all decisions made and your graduation requirements


NOTE: Honors advising only addresses issues specific to the Honors Program and should not
be confused with academic advising in your major. You should see your academic advisor from your
major at least once per year or as otherwise required by your department. 


Honors Advising Portal

You can ask for advice and feedback on your Honors course selections through the Honors
Advising Portal here. You can also use the portal to request a face-to-face advising session (in person
or virtually).  We want you to have all of the information you need to meet your goals
and to take advantage of the many opportunities in the Honors Program.
