Your academic advisor is trained to know all of your degree requirements from beginning to end and can assist in planning your courses in an appropriate sequence. You can direct most university-related questions to your advisor, and they can guide you to available resources.
We highly recommend that you meet with your academic advisor at least once a semester to discuss any of the following:
The College of Health Solutions offers pre-health advising to help support students who are interested in pursuing careers in medicine, veterinary medicine, optometry, dentistry, chiropractic medicine, pharmacy, occupational therapy, physical therapy or who want to become a physician assistant. Students majoring in any degree program can utilize pre-health advising services. Pre-health advising offers guidance on career pathways, application timelines, prerequisite requirements, personal statement reviews and mock interviews, including multiple mini interviews (MMI).
Before meeting with a pre-health advisor for the first time, you must attend one of the Pre-Health 101 workshop offerings.
During your graduate program, you will be supported by both a faculty advisor and a staff advisor, called a graduate support coordinator.
Your graduate support coordinator is a staff member who supports your academic success, and they are here to help! Email CHSgrad@asu.edu or call 602-496-3300 with questions related to policies and procedures to help you navigate graduate school successfully. This includes questions related to satisfactory academic progress, maintaining continuous enrollment, academic transactions, completing your iPOS, and scheduling defenses.
As you progress through your degree program, you will have a faculty advisor or committee chair who will help you identify courses in line with your interests while staying on track toward degree completion. Faculty advisors play a key role in a student’s thesis, capstone project, applied project or dissertation.
Graduate academic programs within the College of Health Solutions are based on the Downtown Phoenix and Tempe campuses and online. Academic programs are housed on specific campuses and we recommend that you schedule an appointment to visit your graduate support coordinator or call for assistance. We can be reached by phone, email, and by appointment.
