After Advising (Stamford)

Congratulations! You’ve seen the campus and created a schedule for your first semester! You are now on the path to your new journey in the UConn Honors Program at Stamford.

Add/Drop/Swap

Remember to “swap don’t drop” if making any changes to your schedule. The “swap” feature holds your seat in one course while you secure a seat in another course (add/drop/swap period continues through Day 10,). Reach out to kaitlin.heenehan@uconn.edu with any questions during this process and/or your advisor listed in StudentAdmin  (will be updated over the summer if currently blank).

Before making any changes, check any necessary AP scores and make sure they have been sent to UConn. It takes time for the scores to be sent and for them to be processed onto your transcript, so do this now!

Trouble enrolling? Here is a list of possible reasons you might not be able to enroll in a class.

Honors Community

  • Follow @uconnstamfordenrichment on Instagram to stay up to speed (particularly during the semester) on opportunities available to you!
  • Application for Peer Allies Through Honors (PATH) Stamford mentoring program is now open and due by Wednesday, August 10th at 9am. 
    • Note: All applicants who apply by the deadline will be considered for a mentor, but a waitlist might be necessary based on mentor match availability. 
    • Goals of PATH:
      • Help students connect to an upperdivision student in their major or with a shared interest
      • Develop leadership skills in mentors and mentees
      • Encourage communication between all members of PATH through interactive activities
      • Help students transition to UConn and the Honors Program
  • UNIV 1784 Facilitators: Your first-year seminar will be taught by an instructor and supported by Honors peer facilitators who will supplement your learning and help you build a strong community with one another. As you learn how to be successful at UConn and in Honors during your first semester, your facilitators will be there to help.
  • Honors Guides for Peer Success: Our Honors Guides for Peer Success (Honors GPS) Team is here to help you navigate the Honors co-curricular requirements and coach you toward success. Find out more here. There will be 2 Honors GPS team members on the Stamford campus this fall!
