Advising for Prospective Pre-Health Students

To learn about enrollment at CU Boulder for the purpose of completing pre-health prerequisites, the first step is to talk with one of our academic advisors. Same-day or next-day appointments are usually available; you may schedule an in-person meeting or simply reserve a time to talk with an advisor over the phone. During this meeting, you will be able to learn about the myriad options for enrolling at CU Boulder as a pre-health student. In addition, our academic advisors can assist you with the enrollment process, course permissions, and CU Boulder resources. Please schedule an appointment or email ceadvise@colorado.edu with your questions.

If you are interested in learning about CU Boulder’s Pre-Health Post-Baccalaureate program, please review the information posted on the program’s information page. If you have further questions, please contact Jennifer Burnham, Program Manager, at Jennifer.L.Burnham@colorado.edu.

In addition, prospective students may take advantage of up to two individual appointments with our career advisor prior to enrolling at no charge. Career advising can provide you with greater clarity regarding a potential career change and can help you sort through the various options. Enrolled students may access additional career advising at no charge. Schedule an appointment with our Career Advisor.

Pre-Health Advising for Enrolled Nondegree Students

The pre-health advisor’s role is to assist enrolled non-degree students at CU Boulder as they prepare to apply to professional school. The pre-health advisor can provide the following services:

  • Provide feedback on your current areas of strength and weakness as a prospective applicant to professional school.
  • Refer you to appropriate activities that will enhance your candidacy.
  • Provide resources and options should you encounter a setback on the pre-health path.
  • Help you prepare strong application materials for professional school admission.

Individual pre-health advising appointments are available to enrolled non-degree students only. Before you may schedule your first individual advising appointment with a pre-health advisor in Continuing Education, you must first complete the following two steps:

  • Meet with an academic advisor to review the best way to complete prerequisites at CU Boulder, as well as application processes and deadlines, and
  • Watch a video that provides a detailed outline of how to become a strong applicant for your desired health profession. On the CU Boulder Career Services website, watch the Field-Specific Informational Video that pertains to the field in which you are interested. You do not need to complete the quiz that accompanies the video. (Please note that, as a non-degree student, you will be accessing pre-health advising from Continuing Education, not Career Services.) After you have met with a Continuing Education academic advisor and watched the required video, you may schedule an individual appointment with a pre-health advisor at Continuing Education.

After completing these two steps, you may schedule a 50 minute appointment.

Now that you’ve selected your favorite Continuing Education courses, email or print the information, including class number, to more easily search MyCUInfo and enroll. Still have questions? Contact an advisor.
