Do I need an appointment for Honors Advising?
No, you do not need an appointment, but having one ensures that you can meet with an advisor at your preferred time. We have designated walk-in advising hours during the week on Tuesdays from 2 to 3:30 PM in both the Burnett Honors College building and Tower III as well as Wednesdays from 10 to 11:30 AM in the Burnett Honors College building only. Otherwise, just stop by the front desk in the Burnett Honors College building to see if an Honors advisor is available to meet with you. If you would like to make an appointment, please call the front desk at 407-823-2076 to do so.
Where do I go to find out when I can register for classes and add, drop, swap, or withdraw from classes?
UCF’s Academic Calendar provides information regarding numerous important dates, including the registration period, add/drop/swap deadlines, withdrawal deadlines, and tuition payment deadlines for several past and future semesters.
There’s a class that I really need, but it’s full. Can you help me?
If it’s an Honors class, please contact Rex Roberts, Director of Advising, to discuss the process for a possible override. Please note that most Honors classes now have waitlists, so usually the best thing to do is to add (or swap) onto the wait list for the course via myUCF. For a non-Honors course, you should visit the department that offers the class. For example, please visit the Department of Mathematics regarding an override into non-Honors Calculus 1.
Do I have to take an Honors class every semester?
No, but please note that you will be asked to meet with an Honors advisor to discuss your future Honors course enrollment if you do not take any Honors classes for two consecutive semesters.
I’m doing University Honors and Honors in the Major. Can I use my HIM courses to satisfy University Honors requirements?
One semester of Undergraduate Thesis can count for one University Honors upper-division requirement. This course is the second part of the HIM sequence. Please see the Office of Honors Research in TCH 248 for more information about the Honors in the Major program.
I am graduating with Honors soon. Do I have to fill out any forms?
Yes, you must complete and submit an Honors Intent To Graduate form to the Office of Student Services in BHC 110. Please click here for further instructions. If you need help filling out the form or you’re not sure whether you meet the requirements, please talk to an Honors advisor.
