What is Pre-Professional Advising?

  • Pre-Professional describes any UC student or UC alumni who has an interest in attending professional school after their undergraduate career.
  • We advise pre-health and pre-law students who are pursuing health professions and law school. 
    • 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. We provide a critical partnership for you to manage this process.
