Academic Advising for Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students are advised by professional staff in the Office of Academic Programs and Student Services (OAPSS) to facilitate student achievement of academic goals in a timely manner. This is achieved by providing dependable, accurate, friendly, respectful, and professional services to students in the following areas:

  • major and pre-major requirements
  • course selection
  • petitions
  • Honors
  • public health career and graduate school opportunities
  • graduation
  • Public Health minors

Academic advisors are knowledgeable about other support resources and will refer as necessary. Self-reliance is encouraged by the College of Public Health by helping students make informed and responsible decisions; students are encouraged to be responsible for their own success and progress.(Excerpt from page 4 of CPH Undergraduate Student Handbook)
