Before Advising (Storrs)

Prepare for your Honors advising appointment (which will happen via WebEx) by completing the following AT LEAST ONE WEEK PRIOR TO YOUR ON-CAMPUS ORIENTATION SESSION:

  1. Gather information on any credits you may have earned through AP, ECE, or other transfer sources, even if you are not planning on using them.
  2. Complete the required Honors INTERACTIVE ADVISING WORKSHEET.  Your advisor will need this information to help guide you through your course selection for your first semester.
    • You will need to log in with your NetID to access this form; if you need help, visit the NetID page or contact UConn ITS.  Remember your login info because you’ll be using it to log into StudentAdmin during your registration appointment!
    • This worksheet is in addition to any other pre-advising form that may be required by your School or College.
  3. Review your school/college requirements and complete any necessary placement exams.
    • Review any information and/or links provided by the Interactive Advising Worksheet.  Think about other courses on your “wish list” – some you will take in the fall and you may enroll in others in future semesters.
    • Download the Cisco Webex Meetings App (recommended) or familiarize yourself with the web client. Information can be found at https://its.uconn.edu/webex.  (Your advising appointment will happen through this program.)

      About your Honors advising appointment:

      • Your Honors advising appointment will be a one-on-one online meeting with an Honors staff member.
      • Plan for a private setting where you can discuss your individual interests and your academic background.
      • Keep in mind that the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibits advisors from sharing information or discussing your educational records with anyone but you.
      • Parents, guardians, and family members should not participate in any online advising appointments.
      • Promptly connect with the advisor via WebEx at the time of your appointment.
      • We highly recommend enabling video for this meeting and using a computer.
      • Appointments are typically scheduled for no more than 60 minutes. To make the most of your meeting, please arrive prepared and on time.

      We look forward to working with you!
