Welcome to the Pre-Professional Advising Center

What is Pre-Professional Advising?

  • Pre-professional is a category that describes any student who has an interest in attending professional school after their undergraduate career.
  • Pre-Professional Advisers 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 the law or 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 meetting with your PPAC advisor at least once each semester.
