Academic Advising

Honors College students are required to meet with an Honors adviser during their first semester at UTA. Failure to make and keep this appointment will result in loss of Honors status and privileges. In addition, the Honors College requires students be advised thereafter at least once a year, in addition to meeting with the major/department adviser. The Honors Advisers and support staff provide Honors students with personalized attention and information that will help them attain their Honors Degree.

Honors Student Records

A record of each student's progress is kept in the Honors College Advising Center. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure that records are up-to-date and accurate. The student should retain copies of his or her records and notify the Honors Advisers of any changes.

Honors Degree Progress

To help students track their academic progress, the Honors Advisers encourage students to make an appointment in their sophomore and junior years to evaluate their progress towards the Honors Degree.

The required yearly advising sessions in the Honors College are to help students be aware of their progress towards their Honors Degree. Students have the opportunity to make sure their records are correct and to get help and feedback in evaluating their progress.

Student Responsibility

The ultimate responsibility for making decisions about educational plans and life goals rests with the individual student. The Honors College advisers are available to assist you with identifying and assessing alternatives.
