HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Spring Walk-in Advising Hours:
Starting on Tuesday, the Honors Program will have walk-in advising hours from 2:00 to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday throughout the Spring 2009 semester in 118 Hume. Please note, there will be no walk-in hours next Friday, January 16. Students are still welcome to arrange advising sessions by appointment by calling 352-392-1519.

2.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Walk-in Hours During Drop/Add Week:
Honors advisors will not be taking any academic advising appointments during drop/add week. Instead, we will have open walk-in advising hours in 118 Hume Hall each day this week from 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:00-4:00pm. Note that not all advisors will be available during these times, so you may not be able to ask for a specific advisor. 

Walk-in advising meetings typically run for 5-10 minutes and are, therefore, most useful for quick questions about registration. 

Please note the following:

-Honors advisors cannot add students to any classes that are full or override drop/add appointment times. 
 
-If you are having trouble registering for an open class because ISIS says you have not met the prereq, you'll need to contact the department that offers the course. Honors advisors cannot override prereqs, even if you actually have met the prereqs.

-If you need a lengthy review of requirements, need to rearrange your AP/IB credits, or want to discuss long-term planning or undergraduate opportunities, *please* wait until after drop/add week is over to meet with an advisor. We will begin taking advising appointments again after next Monday. Just call our office at 352-392-1519 or stop by Hume to set up an appointment.
