After Advising (Stamford)

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

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, September 13th). Reach out to kaitlin.heenehan@uconn.edu with any questions during this process and/or your advisor listed in StudentAdmin in your Student Center (will be updated over the summer if currently blank).

Here are some additional things to do and look out for:

  • Complete the Honors First-year reply form if you haven’t already.
  • Check UConn email.
  • Come and meet your fellow first year honors students virtually at our Honors speed networking event, The One Where I Met my Honors Peers. This event will be happening on Webex on Monday June 28th from 5 PM- 6 PM EDT. You will interact with each other in small groups in separate breakout rooms- we will share unique questions with you and you will answer them as you progress through the breakout rooms. We’ll have you switch rooms every few minutes so you can meet as many people as possible. Reach out to emma.a.schwarz@uconn.edu or kaitlin.heenehan@uconn.edu if you have any questions or concerns. Hope to see you all there!  https://s.uconn.edu/honorsnetworking
