Canfield BHP Advisors

The Canfield Business Honors Program has dedicated academic advisors who are fluent in university and Canfield BHP resources. In an appointment with an advisor, you'll discuss more than just academic classes: the Canfield BHP advisors want to know you and your goals, struggles, and strengths. Our advisors take an individualized approach to each student's academic plan. They offer scholastic guidance, and they can answer any questions you may have about UT and the Canfield BHP.
