Pre-Health Advising for Enrolled Non-Degree Students

Non-degree students enrolled in either our Structured Cohort or Individually Designed Pre-Health Post-Baccalaureate programs have access to individual pre-health advising, dedicated student mentors, and a rich program of group workshops. We delight in working with nontraditional students; our advisees range in age from their early 20s to their 40s and beyond.

By working with an experienced pre-health advisor, you can gain:

  • Feedback on your current areas of strength and weakness as a prospective applicant to professional school, with referrals to appropriate activities that will enhance your candidacy,

  • A personalized timeline and term-by-term coursework plan to prepare you to become a strong applicant to professional school. The individualized plan is  informed by your academic history, your experience history, your goals, and your other non-academic time commitments.

  • Resources and an understanding of your options, should you encounter a setback on the pre-health path,

  • Assistance with preparing strong application materials for professional school admission,

  • Expert preparation for interviews at professional schools.

Advising for Prospective Pre-Health Students

We strongly encourage all prospective pre-health students to attend one of our live Information Sessions, which are held on Zoom about once per month. A pre-recorded version also is available on the Information Session webpage.

Prospective students may schedule a time to talk with one of our academic advisors to learn how to complete your pre-health prerequisites at CU Boulder. They will help you understand all of the enrollment options available to you and can help you understand the differences in cost, availability of financial aid, and access to courses among those options. 

How to schedule a time to talk with one of our academic advisors:

1. Log in to our online appointment system

2. Click on the Continuing Education tile

3. Select "Academic Advising" as your appointment type

Same-day or next-day appointments are usually available.

Individual appointments with our pre-health advisors are reserved for students who are currently enrolled in one of our post-baccalaureate pre-health programs. We also continue to support former students who have completed 18 credit hours of pre-health coursework in one of our post-baccalaureate programs.
