  • Seeking help with your classes and assistance with academic resources to keep your grades up.
  • Referrals to resume building experiences and opportunities on campus.
  • Planning your course schedule for the next semester to ensure you take classes that will apply towards graduation.
  • Making sure you avoid course combinations that are too difficult or unrealistic for your schedule.
  • Discussing the Senior Honors Thesis and how to get involved in undergraduate research.
  • Helping you plan for graduation and determine your target graduation date.
  • Anything else you need help with to be successful in college!

All Bauer Honors students are required to have at least one advising session per semester. However, you are welcome to meet with your advisor more often than once a semester if you would like!

Remember, Bauer Honors students can register for classes as early as one week before the general university so be sure to schedule your advising appointment early in the semester! Go to Navigate to schedule your appointment today.
