What Can I See My Advisor For?
Honors Advisors can assist with and answer questions on the following subjects:
- How to join the Honors College
- Earning Honors credit, either by the Honors Option or through Honors sections
- Honors 3000 (Service-Learning), Honors 42xx (Honors Seminar), and Honors 4998 (Honors Thesis) courses
- Honors Credit Audits
- Honors Private Scholarships
- Graduating with Honors
If you have any questions pertaining to your Merit Scholarship, please direct those questions to the Financial Aid Office.
The advisor's role is an active rather than a passive one and the process of advising requires the following objectives to be met for each student assigned as an advisee:
- Meet with students to plan for the coming semester (or summer) and to review/revise long-range academic program schedules.
- Assist students in planning a program consistent with their abilities and interests.
- Interpret and provide rationale for institutional policies, procedures, and requirements.
- Inform and, if necessary, refer students to other institutional resources when academic, attitudinal, attendance, or other personal problems require intervention by other professionals.
- Proactively contact and be available for student advisees on a regular basis
The advisee is an equal partner in the advising process. As an advisee you are ultimately responsible for your educational choices and decisions. You are expected to:
- Come prepared to your advising session with a planned worksheet for the forthcoming semester. Also, bring audit worksheets from any previous meetings.
- Become knowledgeable and adhere to institutional policies, procedures, and requirements.
- Read your WSU email and other important communications from the Honors College and your advisor.
- Accept final responsibility for all decisions made and your graduation requirements.
