The staff of the Kugelman Honors Program serve as dedicated Honors advisors to students in the program.
Advising and Honors
Honors advisors are available to all students in the Kugelman Honors Program to discuss Honors-related advising concerns. Students classified as freshmen, and those with an undecided major, will see Honors advisors as their primary advisor.
When a student's classification is adjusted to sophomore, junior, or senior status, their departmental advisor becomes their primary advisor, but Honors advisors continue to assist students in planning the completion of Honors requirements. A student's status can be verified through MyUWF and can change whenever credit is earned or transcripts are received.
Advising and Registration Basics
- Check your e-mail daily. E-mail is the primary way advisors, and other representatives of the university, will communicate with you. If you are not checking your UWF e-mail account regularly, you run the risk of missing time-sensitive messages.
- Schedule advising appointments through SSC Campus. If you need to schedule a time to meet with an advisor, navigate to SSC Campus in MyUWF, select a reason for your appointment, select Honors as a location, and pick any Honors advisor. You will sometimes receive an e-mail via SSC Campus containing a link for you to set up an appointment for regular events like Spring, Summer, and Fall registration. SSC Campus also allows students to access advising notes and links to set up tutoring appointments.
- To register for classes, you must meet with an advisor. You cannot register for classes without first obtaining your Advising PIN; you cannot obtain your Advising PIN without meeting with an advisor to discuss your schedule. Once released, Advising PINs can be viewed in the "Advising Status" app in MyUWF.
- Honors students have Advance Registration privileges. To take advantage of Advance Registration, Honors students should make their advising appointments as soon after they receive an e-mail notification as possible. The earlier you make an appointment, the better chance you have of seeing your advisor in time to plan your schedule and be ready to register once the Advance Registration period opens.
Probation, Termination, and Reinstatement
All students in the Kugelman Honors Program must maintain a 3.25 G.P.A. at UWF.
Failure to meet this requirement will result in being placed on probation in the Honors Program. If an Honors student fails to achieve a 3.25 G.P.A. for two consecutive semesters, the student will become academically ineligible to be a member of the Honors Program. Students who do not complete an Honors course for two consecutive semesters (not including summer semester) will be terminated for non-participation.
Students who have become academically ineligible can apply for reinstatement to the University Honors Program once their G.P.A. exceeds 3.25 by submitting a petition for reinstatement to the Honors Director.
