University Honors Program

Live, Learn, Achieve

We are dedicated to assisting Honors students as they work toward completing their degree requirements and graduating "with Honors."  Students with questions or concerns are strongly encouraged to visit the Honors Commons in the Kennedy Library (room 510). The Commons is open Mondays 9am-3pm and Tuesday-Friday 9am-4pm. Throughout the week, our peer advisors will be available in the Commons or on Zoom to answer questions. See the Peer Advising Schedule below. 

Honors students are reminded that MANY advising resources are available on campus, as well as through the individual major programs and colleges.  Don't be afraid to ask for help!  A variety of advising resources may be found at the Cal Poly Academic Advising website.  Also, the Honors Program Handbook Canvas site can be a valuable resource.

Starting Week 2, peer advisors are available to provide drop-in advising in the Honors Commons during the days and times listed below. You can also reach out to any of the Peer Advisors directly to set up a Zoom advising session. Zoom links & further information will be posted shortly.
