HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Space is limited and given on a first come, first served basis.

Step 1: Submit a housing contract (http://www.housing.ufl.edu/undergrad/apply/recontracting/) by January 13.

2.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: Drop/Add and Walk-in Advising Hours:
If you need to see an honors advisor, please call the Honors Office at (352) 392-1519 to make an appointment. Please do not e-mail advisors directly about making appointments.

Advisors will be available via walk-in advising every Tuesday - Thursday from 10:00am-12:00pm in 343 Infirmary throughout the spring semester. 

Schedule:
Tuesdays: Dr. Melissa Johnson
Wednesdays: Regan Garner
Thursdays: Dr. John Denny

Walk-in advising meetings typically run for about 5 minutes (especially during drop/add week) and are, therefore, most useful for quick questions. 

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 or want to discuss long-term planning or undergraduate opportunities, *please* wait until after drop/add week is over to meet with an advisor. 

Depending on your advising question, it may be more appropriate for you to see your college advisor. College advising contacts: http://www.ufadvising.ufl.edu/advisers.aspx 

Don't forget that drop/add ends at 11:59pm on January 10. For more information on registration, visit http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/soc/regtips.html
