Pathway-Specific Advising

Information on advising for students in pre-med/health and other pre-professional pathways may be found at the following locations.

Additionally, each department has created a Pathway to Success handout for each major. These handouts supplement the degree plan to help you navigate your major by semester or by year with consideration to courses that should be completed, high-impact experiences you can engage in, and reflection questions to determine your goals moving forward.
