Honors Program Advising

Advising Through the Years: Connected-Supported-Successful


Advising at the Honors Program

The goal of Honors advising is to assist students in transitioning into a successful college experience, connecting them to resources and opportunities inside and outside of the classroom, and acting as a consistent source of support during the undergraduate experience. Honors Advisors connect with students to empower them to make the most of their time at Northeastern University. In Honors, we advise students in ways that will assist them in having a rich and well-rounded undergraduate experience through a developmental advising model.

As part of our First-Year Experience programming, the Honors Program requires advising for all First-Year students, starting their Fall semester. Additional advising for Second-Year and upper-class students is available and strongly encouraged by Honors Program staff. Our advising initiative concludes with a mandatory Senior Clearance.

All advising is developed and targeted to support students at critical decision-making junctures.  Students may schedule additional advising meetings at any time to consult with Honors staff on issues that they would like to discuss, such as research opportunities, global study and possible graduate school plans.
