You are always welcome to schedule a meeting with your class dean to introduce yourself, discuss your plans for the semester, and/or explore opportunities that will enhance your educational experience. Let us know if you are having challenges at any point in the semester (e.g. absences, missing assignments, or stress). Meetings with us early on in the semester allows us to connect you with appropriate resources such as counseling, accessibility services, and workshops on time management and study skills.
Health Professions – With registration PINs and Spring 2023 course selection underway, many of you have questions about your proposed schedules. As has been our recent practice, the HPAdvising Office has times available for you to seek answers to the questions you have been researching for yourself. Some important caveats:
(1) Run your Degree Works with multiple potential course schedules.
(2) Review the HP Information Session on our website for your class.
(3) Review the webpage for your intended academic major, as well as our recommended HP Core Courses.
(4) Plan at least 3 options to your preferred schedule.
(5) Meet with your Academic Advisor BEFORE meeting with HPA.
(6) If you have a specific issue or thorny question, please articulate it by email in advance so we can research it if necessary.
To schedule your advising session, email us directly: Prof. Nancy Waters (email@example.com); Ms. Simona Glaus (firstname.lastname@example.org).
