In addition to mandatory advisement by the University of North Georgia (UNG) Advisement Center for all students who have completed less than 45 credit hours, students entering the Honors Program will be advised by the Honors director on their campus in consultation with faculty from the student’s major discipline.

Students who are active in the Honors Program can register early for classes the following semester by contacting Dr. Steve Smith (director at Dahlonega), Dr. Royce Dansby-Sparks (director at Dahlonega), Jennifer Graff (director at Gainesville), or Dr. Katherine Kipp (director at Oconee).

In addition to help with course selection and priority registration, Honors students receive guidance from their campus director in various ways:

  • developing academic presentations for undergraduate student conferences
  • preparing applications for scholarships and graduate school
  • planning and managing Honors Program service activities

First-year students on the Dahlonega Campus are appointed a student mentor to help them with their studies.

In each case, Honors students are encouraged to gain confidence in making independent decisions that will help them achieve their academic goals and grow as community-conscious leaders.
