Honors Advisement

Individualized advisement, faculty mentorship, and scholar development are a significant part of the benefits of becoming a member of the Honors College at Rutgers-Newark. Our advisement seeks to support students in their development and exploration of their educational and career goals by fostering a collaborative, mentoring process to promote responsibility in their decision-making process. Students are required to meet with their honors advisor yearly to develop to update their academic plan and identify academic and enrichment opportunities.

Advising through the Honors College does not replace advising through academic departments. Students are encouraged to visit major or their general advisors for academic-specific questions.


Responsibilities and Expectations

Student can expect the advisor to:

  • Foster an inclusive environment where students feel safe, respected, supported and valued
  • Facilitate conversations unique to each individual
  • Initiate questions to encourage meaningful dialog
  • Provide educational opportunities and resources to expand and maximize a student’s potential
  • Review strategies with meeting a student’s academic and professional goals
  • Assist students with their post-graduation goals


Students are expected to:

  • Be equal partners in the advising process
  • Be aware of critical dates and deadlines offered through the Honors College and on the RU-N campus
  • Review important communication (Canvas, Email, Teams, and RUN4SUCCESS) from the Honors College in a timely manner
  • Be able to articulate one’s progress towards their academic and professional goals, as well as completion of honors
  • Accept final responsibility for all choices and decisions
  • Be open to learning opportunities through active engagement and reflection
