Honors Advising

Honors advisers are available to meet all year round.

Honors students are encouraged to be in touch with Honors advisers at all stages of their UNH education. Most Honors students have an advising meeting at least once a year. This gives students a chance to check in regarding their Honors progress, discuss major and minor plans, and learn about academic and professional opportunities including Honors-specific scholarships, national and UNH-based fellowship and research applications, internships, graduate and professional school applications, and much more.

Making appointments

During the school year, you can always drop by Conant 115 to meet with an adviser (or just grab a cup of coffee/tea and see who's around!). 

On myWildcat Success, you'll see that there is an Honors adviser assigned to your Success Team. We do this to make sure that you can always contact someone in Honors. However, Honors advisers all collaborate and you can schedule an appointment with ANY adviser who fits your schedule or who you've worked with before.

Honors advisers are available for appointments both in person and over zoom. To see availabilities and make an appointment, "Schedule an Appointment" on myWildcat Success. Under "Care Unit," select "Other Support or Advising," under "Location," select "University Honors Program," and for "Service" select whether you'd like an in-person or remote appointment. 

Or you can make an appointment with a specific adviser by clicking one of the links below to see availabilities.
