HONORS ANNOUNCEMENTS

1. ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Attention Out-of-state National Merit & Achievement Scholars (NEW POSTING):
If you are an out-of-state student who plans on attending summer classes, in order to use your nine credits of out-of-state fee waiver, you must turn in the summer fee waiver form that can be found off the Honors website (http://www.honors.ufl.edu/forms.html) or in 140 Tigert Hall. This form must be turned in by the end of summer drop/add to Fran Green. Summer A/C drop/add ends May 15, and Summer B drop/add ends July 3.

***If the form is not turned in by the end of drop/add, your waiver will NOT be processed***

2. ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Walk-in Advising at Hume This Week (TODAY):
Advisors will have walk-in hours in the offices next to the Hume classrooms this week during the following times:
Thursday from 10:00am-12:00pm and 1:30-4:30pm (Melissa Johnson).
Friday from 2:00-3:00pm and 4:00-5:00pm (Dr. Drummond).

Note that an honors advisor will be available for most of the day at Hume this Thursday!

During the registration period, demand for walk-in advising at Hume can be heavy. During this time, walk-in advising is most useful for quick (5-10 min) questions about registration. Walk-in advising generally is not recommended during this registration period if you need a lengthy review of requirements or want to discuss long-term planning or undergraduate opportunities. Please call the Honors Office at 392-1519 if you would like to make an appointment with an advisor to discuss those items.

3. OPPORTUNITY: Writing Coaching Available on Thursday (TODAY):
Writing coaching is now available to all honors students. Coach Sarah Bartlett is available to assist you with your personal statement for grad school, scholarship applications, research papers and more.
