Careful and considered advising is central to all academic programs at Qatar University. Every student is assigned an academic advisor upon matriculation; however, Honors students also have access to an Honors advisor, who will advise both in Honors issues as well as in broader areas.

Honors advisors will maintain contact with students, all hold open office hours as well as correspond regularly with students via e-mail and hold appointments outside of specified hours. Honors advising is similar to mentoring and it does not end with advising on Honors Program curriculum issues.
