As a UHP student, you will have more than one advisor. Your primary advisor(s) will be in your academic major(s). While you may rely on your academic advisor for guidance within your specific major, you should also check in with your honors advisor to ensure that you are on track, considering all possibilities for your senior requirements, and are knowledgeable of all scholarship opportunities.
The Honors College endorses several high-achieving students every year for nationally competitive awards and fellowships such as the Truman, Goldwater, and Marshall. We provide advising to all students (not just honors students) who are interested in developing a profile likely to lead to a successful nomination. The earlier you start, the better your chances! We provide this information on awards and fellowships so you can learn as much as possible on your own. Please see our page on National Scholarships for Advanced Undergraduate & Graduate Study for more information.
Pre-Health Professions Advising
The Pre-Health Professions Advising office provides counseling and resources for enrolled students and graduates of UNC Charlotte who are interested in health-related professional graduate schools (medical, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, optometry, physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy, podiatry) and related non-nursing fields. Information and guidance on academic requirements, credentials, application procedures, and extracurricular activities is available. Pre-health advising is intended to supplement (not replace) the student's academic planning with their academic advisor.
Appointments are available to currently enrolled students (non-visiting) who meet eligibility requirements and alumni. Incoming freshmen and transfer students should plan to complete an orientation to their pre-health track as part of SOAR summer orientation (see your SOAR online packet). For questions or comments, please email PreHealth Advising.
