Advising and Orientation

 

About Academic Advising

Academic Advising is important to all of us – it is more than scheduling classes. Beyond courses selection and registration, your academic advisor can assist you with:

  • Connecting you with resources to bolster academic success
  • Navigating student issues (non-academic)
  • Advising on program admission and how to be a strong applicant
  • Offering recommendations on student involvement
  • Assisting with graduation preparation

Prior to meeting with their academic advisor, students should prepare by bringing a list of topics or questions to cover in order to use their time effectively. For formal advising appointments, it is recommended that students should bring their course registration plans as well as their degree audit.

 

Appointments

All Pre-Clinical Leadership Management, Pre-Communication Sciences and Disorders, and Pre-Medical Laboratory Science students should schedule their formal advising appointments through their myUK

Academic Advisors are also available for general appointments outside of the "advising seasons." For these appointments, students should email their advisor based on program below:


Pre-CLM, Pre-CSD, Pre-MLSEmail Corrie Scott
Human Health Sciences majorsEmail Wayne Centers

Walk-ins can generally be accommodated, but this method is not recommended during advising seasons where appointment traffic is high. In these scenarios students may be asked to wait until an academic advisor becomes available.

Advising appointments shall take place during standard business hours of the Office of Student Affairs.

 

Pre-Health-Professional Advising

The UK College of Health Sciences offers advising services for students interested in a variety of health professions (e.g., audiology, dentistry, medicine, physical therapy, physician assistant, etc.). Click here for more info.  

Pre-PT and PA Advising and Information Sessions

For students interested in the Graduate Physical Assistant Studies Master's program or the Professional Physical Therapy Doctoral program, advising is available. These students should contact Corrie Scott or Wayne Centers to schedule an appointment. It is recommended that these students should send any transcript information in advance (either through email or fax) so that the advisor selected has ample time for review.

Prospective students interested in the Physician Assistant Students or Physical Therapy are encouraged to attend program orientation sessions that are held monthly, during the academic year (fall and spring). Specific session information is available through each respective program's website.
