Advising Requirements

The University Honors Program requires the following students to be advised:

  • New applicants to the program (continuing student or transfer)
  • All students who wish to enroll in an Honors course are required to meet with an advisor
  • College of Arts & Sciences students with fewer than 24 credits earned

While it is not mandatory, all University Honors Program students are strongly encouraged to participate in academic advising each semester of their undergraduate career.


Advising Availability

Office hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. To schedule an advising appointment, please contact the University Honors Program at (502) 852-6293 or stop by the Etscorn Honors Center on the first floor of Threlkeld Hall. If you have a quick question, please call the office, stop by for a visit, or send us an email. Please allow 48 hours for response to emails.

Current Honors students will participate in a first-come, first-served advising campaign process in both the fall and spring semesters to set up appointments with their Honors advisor. Detailed instructions on how this process works each semester are provided to current Honors students via the student’s UofL e-mail accounts in the Honors e-newsletter, The Current as well as through the Honors listserv, and information is also available about this process on the Honors website.

Note: If you are an officially declared major in the College of Arts & Sciences OR if you are an Honors student enrolled in another academic unit (College of Business, Speed School of Engineering, College of Education & Human Development, School of Dentistry, School of Music, School of Nursing, School of Public Health & Information Sciences, or Kent School of Social Work), then it is strongly recommended you meet with both your Honors advisor and your departmental or academic unit advisor. If you have questions about this, please call (502) 852-6293 or email us at .

Who Is My Advisor?

All Honors students are welcome to meet with any of the four academic advisors in our office or either of our assistant directors.
