Welcome to the Honors College, Incoming Students!

Academic Advising

Our Honors College advisors look forward to meeting with you to discuss your future! The process for signing up for and having your academic advising appointment will occur separately from New Student Orientation and Line Camp. Please note that your advising appointment may come before or after your Line Camp session, or any summer classes you may choose to take at Baylor. CLICK HERE to review the timeline for academic advising.

It is important that you make final decisions about your combination of programs so that the appropriate advisor is assigned to you.  Please refer to the Honors College website for more information on our programs.  You may also contact the office for the program you may still be considering.

Meet the Honors College

If you haven't been able to attend any previous recruitment events (Invitation to Excellence, Distinguished Scholars Day, Baylor Bound Day) the Honors College is hosting joint Meet the Honors College sessions (dates TBD) for incoming students in either program. CLICK HERE for more details!

Scheduling an Advising Appointment

You will receive an email with information about scheduling your advising appointment. In the meantime, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the course catalog and degree plan so that you can bring any questions you may have to your advising appointment. When scheduling your advising appointment, please make sure that it does not overlap with your in-person Orientation and Baylor Line Camp experience.
