A professional advisor is available to assist students who are working on the prerequisites for a professional program. Once admitted to a professional program, students are advised by faculty within the program. It is the student’s responsibility to seek counseling and guidance. Students are responsible for planning a program to meet degree requirements and for filing a completed application by the specific program’s application deadline. Resources related to program admission requirements, cost sheets and equivalency grids are available on each degree program page.
An academic advisor for Health Professions Programs is available daily in the Van Nuys Medical Science Building Room 203. Office hours are also available Tuesday mornings in the Health and Life Science Academic and Career Advising Center (Hine Hall, Suite 241).
