Welcome to the Pre-Professional Advising Center


What is Pre-Professional Advising

  • Pre-professional describes any student who has an interest in attending professional school after their undergraduate career. 
  • Pre-Professional Advisors collaborate with students starting in their freshman year, helping them explore their options, prepare an outstanding portfolio and then apply to  professional schools.
  • Whether you are in a major such as pre-pharmacy, or pursuing a career track in law or the health professions (Medicine, Dental, Optometry, Veterinary, etc.) our advisors provide a critical partnership for you to manage this process.

Getting Started

  1. Attend a Pre-Health Introduction Workshop or Pre-Law Introduction Workshop (If a PPAC advisor visits your Learning Community, this will satisfy your Introduction Workshop requirement.)
  2. Make your first 1-on-1 advising appointment
  • After attending an Introduction Workshop, begin meeting with your PPAC advisor at least once per semester.
  • Contact us at preproadv@uc.edu or 513-556-2166 to schedule your appointment!
