Pre-Professional Health Programs

Current Pre-Professional Undergraduate Students

After you are registered and enrolled in your first semester at Cleveland State, you continue building a relationship with the team of advisors assigned to you. Who is My Advisor describes who your advisors are. You should meet regularly with your advisors. During your advising appointment your advisor will discuss courses you’re taking, courses that you need to take and plans you have for professional school admission. 

Making the Most of your Pre-Professional Advising Appointment

  • Prepare for the advising appointment:
    • Assess where you are currently with your GPA and GPA goals and your experiences.

    • Prepare a list of questions to ask the coordinator and also be prepared to answer some questions about your goals and your academic progress.
