Student meeting with an Honors advisor.


Honors Academic Advisors understand the unique perspectives, challenges, and stresses of high-achieving students. But we do much more than check boxes on a degree worksheet; our goal is to help you design the LIFE you want by guiding you toward all the tools and experiences you need.

Advising Appointments

We strongly recommend that you meet with an Honors Advisor at least once each semester. During these 30-60 minute appointments, we’ll cover your academic progress, plan future semesters, and personal and professional goals. Bring us your questions and concerns – we want to help you overcome challenges and celebrate your successes!

We work closely with your Major-specific Advising Center(s) to create your individualized plan of study at UNLV. For select majors, we offer "joint advising" where students consult with an Honors and Major-specific advisor in the same meeting.


To schedule an advising appointment, please call the Honors College main line at 702-895-2263.
