Current Students

Pre-major students in the College of Health Professions receive academic advising provided by professional advisers in the Student Success Center. These advisers guide their students through the prerequisite requirements and coordinate their application for the major when ready.

After beginning the major, students are assigned a faculty adviser who will guide them through the major. Advisers in the Student Success Center continue to be available for assistance with General Education and Honors Distribution questions.

Transfer Students

Students interested in transferring to a major in the College of Health Professions should submit copies of transcripts to the appropriate pre-major adviser. All copies need to be legible, showing course name, number and grade earned. The adviser will return an evaluation to the student indicating where the student stands in relation to prerequisite courses. An appointment with the adviser can be scheduled after the evaluation is completed.
