Drop-In Advising

Drop-in Virtual Advising for Incoming First-Year Honors Students (Class of 2027)

Honors Advisors will be available at select times through May to answer your questions about Honors Carolina, UNC’s general education curriculum (IDEAS in Action), the course catalog, and key online resources. Although we will not be able to register you for classes or help you produce a four-year plan at this time and in this context*, we can offer clarification about certain requirements and programs offered at UNC. This is a great opportunity to potentially meet your future advisor and begin the conversation that will lead you on your particular path to academic success.

*Registration will be open after your Orientation session later this summer. Extended appointments for program planning will begin with the Fall semester.

When: From 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm (ET) on May 3rd, 8th, 15th, 17th, 22nd, and 24th.

  1. Drop-in advising is neither mandatory nor a condition or your involvement in Honors Carolina! Please do not feel obligated to attend any session if it does not suit your needs at this time.
  2. This is a first-come, first-served service. If it is unlikely that we will be able to see you during the session because of demand, we will try to let you know in real time.
