Advising Policies


A UHP hold will be put on your account if you fail to schedule a required Honors advising appointment. This hold will prevent you from registering for the following semester.

If you've met with your advisor and a UHP hold still appears on your MyU portal, be sure to click on the hold and check the "effective term." If the effective term is the semester for which you’ll be registering, call the office at 612-624-5522. Otherwise, don't worry.

Please note that a hold placed by your department or by any entity other than UHP must be addressed with that department or entity.

Advisor Email Policy

Honors advisors check email as feasible during their work hours (Monday through Friday, 8 am-4:30 pm). Since they are also in appointments, attending meetings, and working on other projects, they cannot generally respond immediately. Please allow 2 to 3 business days for a response. If you need immediate assistance, please contact the front desk at 612-624-5522.
