As a UHP student, you will have more than one advisor. Your primary advisor(s) will be in your academic major(s). While you may rely on your academic advisor for guidance within your specific major, you should seek honors advising as well to ensure that you are on track, considering all possibilities for your senior requirements, and are knowledgeable of all scholarship opportunities.
The Honors College endorses several high-achieving students every year for nationally competitive awards and fellowships such as the Truman, Goldwater, and Marshall. We provide advising to all students (not just honors students) who are interested in developing a profile likely to lead to a successful nomination. The earlier you start, the better your chances! We provide this information on awards and fellowships so you can learn as much as possible on your own. Please see our page on National Scholarships for Advanced Undergraduate & Graduate Study for more information.
The Pre-Health Professions Advising office, located in the Honors College, provides counseling and resources for students and graduates of UNC Charlotte who are interested in health-related professional graduate schools (medical, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, optometry, physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy, podiatry) and related non-nursing fields. Information and guidance on academic requirements, credentials, application procedures, and extracurricular activities is available. Pre-health advising is intended to supplement (not replace) the student's academic planning with their academic advisor.
Appointments are available to currently enrolled students (non-visiting) who meet eligibility requirements, alumni, and postbacc/second-degree students who have received an acceptance to the University. Incoming freshmen and transfer students should plan to complete a pre-health orientation at the beginning of fall or spring semester; pre-health orientations are not provided in the summer. For questions or comments, please email PreHealth Advising.
