Current Phone or Virtual Advising options

The following options are available to seek advising through the Honors College:

1. You can email Kary with any questions. This includes questions about your schedule, your next steps in Honors, plans regarding your senior project, or making sure you have fulfilled your requirements to graduate.

2. All Honors students can click here to schedule a virtual or phone appointment with Kary through Navigate. When prompted to select a Major/Minor, select 'Honors' in order to see available honors advising appointments. These appointments are particularly good for first year students looking for a conversation about their next steps in Honors. This is also a good option for students who want to learn more about Honors requirements when studying abroad. Additionally, students who are struggling in classes or with their mental health should set up an appointment to talk about resources and next steps. Currently new appointments are added on a weekly basis, so please continue to check back for availability. For step by step directions on how to setup an appointment please click here

These appointments are for current students only, prospective students please contact the office at 616-331-3219 or with your questions and for more information regarding the Meijer Honors College.

FERPA Guidelines

Please note: If students request additional participants (such as parents or partners) to advising appointments or any conversation regarding course performance, it is required that the student fill out the FERPA Permissions to Release Non-Public Information.
