Honors College Academic Advising

The Honors College provides specialized academic advising to current and prospective JMU Honors students. Our advising team provides assistance with the following:

  • Developing an Honors curricular pathway that is unique to each student's academic goals
  • Explaining requirements for Honors, General Education, and degree programs
  • Academic planning and decision-making
  • Referrals to campus resources

Honors advising does not replace the advising that students receive from their other advisor(s). Rather, our advising team serves as the primary contact for all Honors-related questions and as an additional resource for other academic and university matters.

Prospective students are welcome and encouraged to meet with an advisor to discuss admission procedures and the Honors curriculum.

Keep Track of Honors Requirements

The Academic Requirements report in MyMadison pulls data from your student record and is generally accurate and up to date.

1. Log into MyMadison.
2. Go to the Student tab.
3. Select the Student Center link.
4. Select the other academic... dropdown.
5. Select Academic Requirements and then click the double arrows.
6. Scroll down to the Honors Interdisciplinary Studies Minor section, usually towards the bottom of the page.
