Pre-professional Preparation

Pre-professional advising provides information about groundwork for admission to specific graduate programs or professional schools. 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. UAF students may also choose to develop an interdisciplinary program of study that prepares them for a variety of professional or graduate programs. For more information contact the Office of Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Studies.

The Academic Advising Center (907-474-6396, uaf.advising@alaska.edu) provides academic advising for all pre-professional areas. The Biology and Wildlife Department and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry 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.
