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.
  • We advise pre-health and pre-law students. See the categories to the left of this page to learn more about our specific advising disciplines. 
  • Pre-Professional Advisors (PPAC) 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 our advisors provide a critical partnership for you to manage this process.

Get Started on Working with the PPAC

  • First, 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.
  • 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 workshop or appointment!
