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 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 the law or health professions (Medicine, Dental, Optometry, Veterinary, etc.) our advisors provide a critical partnership for you to manage this process.
Meet with Us! | Here's How:
1. First meeting: Attend an Introduction to Pre-Professional Advising Workshop.*Some Pre-Health Learning Communities include us in your classroom. *Current Pre-Pharmacy freshmen attend Pre-Pharmacy Mandatory Advising Workshops, fall and spring.
