Pre-Health Advising

Note: Sophomore, Junior, and Senior students interested in medicine, dental, optometry, and podiatry who have not been to pre-health advising, must also complete the intro workshop prior to scheduling an appointment with an adviser.


ATTENTION: Meredith Laurie is no longer working within our office. Currently, freshmen students are advised to seek advising from the Student Advisory Board and all allied health students interested in advising should email the office with general inquiries until a replacement for Ms. Laurie has been found. We will post when Meredith's position is re-filled, but until then, please be patient. Students in the nursing pathway program should seek advising with Alicia Thomas, who has appointment times available on our scheduling website below. 


See the chart above to identify the appropriate advisor for you.
Please be sure to fill out an Advising Form before you come to the office.
Students who come to walk-ins cannot also be holding an advising time on appointment-plus; coming to walk-ins will result in your existing appointment being canceled.
