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 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.

Working with the PPAC

  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 Workhsop requirement). 
  2. Make your first 1-on-1 advising appointment after completing an Introduction workshop. 
  3. After attending an Introduction workshop, continue meeting with your PPAC advisor at least once per semester.
