As a member of both the Honors and Oregon State University communities, you have an advisor from your academic major(s) and an advisor within the Honors College. Honors College Academic Advisors are skilled professionals who can help you understand and navigate your HC requirements, including the thesis, as well as assist you with course scheduling, career planning, Oregon State resources, international opportunities, academic success goals, scholarships, post-graduation plans, and more. It is recommended that you meet with an advisor once per term, no less than once per year. Advising appointments can last up to 30-minutes and are available throughout the year, including summer.
