UAF students may develop a program of study that prepares them for a variety of professional or graduate programs. Pre-professional advising provides information about groundwork for admission to a specific graduate program or professional school. Most professional schools do not require a specific major for admission to their program. However, many courses may be required before admittance into the program, so a student must research admissions requirements carefully.
The Academic Advising Center provides academic advising for all pre-professional areas. The Biology and Wildlife Department and the Chemistry Department provide additional academic advising for the medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary and allied health pre-professional programs. The Justice Department provides academic advising for law pre-professional programs.
Descriptions of each of the following professions and some information about required undergraduate course work are at www.uaf.edu/advising/preprof/. Contact the Academic Advising Center at 907-474-6396 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
