Advising and Registration

Honors students at Saint Louis University work with a primary adviser and dedicated members from our staff who can help you meet the requirements of the honors program, select and register for courses, explore research and thesis options, plan for post-graduation and find scholarship opportunities.

Honors advisers also work closely with faculty mentors and staff from programs like pre-health and pre-law studies and Micah.

Schedule an Appointment

You can schedule an appointment with your honors adviser through mySLU, by contacting the University Honors Program at 314-977-3951 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, or by stopping by the University Honors Program office in Verhaegen Hall, room 119.

If you are making an appointment through mySLU, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your mySLU account
  2. Open the "Tools" tab and select "SLU Appointments"
  3. Select "Search Availability" in the student options box on the left side of the page
  4. Under "Center," select "University Honors Program Advising"
  5. Follow the prompts to select desired date and time

The University Honors Program also has walk-in advising hours during the fall and spring semesters, which are posted in our weekly newsletter. Additional advising questions can be directed to honors@slu.edu.

The University Honors Program offers group advising sessions prior to each semester, as well, providing you with  an opportunity to connect with fellow honors students and to talk with advisers about the upcoming semester.

Registration

Honors students receive priority registration, which means you can register for courses one business day before registration officially opens. Registration dates are available through the Office of the University Registrar.

Honors advisers are not able to provide registration PINs. These PINs will be emailed to students in advance of the registration period by the registrar.

Finding Honors Courses

A complete list of honors-only and cross-listed honors courses can be found here. To search for honors courses using Banner Self-Service, select the appropriate term, campus and department and then click “Honors Course” in the attribute box. 

Honors courses can also be found by searching either "honors" (in the case of HR 1900: Crossroads and some upper-level requirements) or the academic discipline (history, theology, etc.) in Banner's drop-down department menu. Honors courses in other academic departments are indicated by an "H" in the section number. For example, THEO 2750 01H would be the honors section of THEO 2750 01.
