First year students receive advising from a College Based Advisor (CBA). All majors in the Zuckerberg College of Health Sciences should contact Jennifer Keene-Crouse, email: Jennifer_KeeneCrouse@uml.edu.
You can also contact your CBA by logging into the Now student dashboard and clicking on Academics. You'll be able to see each CBA's calendar and schedule an in-person meeting.
Students are assigned a faculty advisor when they are admitted to the program. Faculty maintain three posted office hours/week for student advising. During registration for classes each semester, faculty maintain five posted office hours/week. Students make appointments during these times to review their academic progress and select the correct courses in their program of study.
Advising during the Fall semester is during the first two weeks in November. For the Spring semester, advising is during the first two weeks in April.
You can find your Faculty Advisor by logging into the Now student dashboard and clicking on Academics.
If you are interested in learning more about our Pre-Health Professions Program, contact Amy Smalarz, email: Amy_Smalarz@uml.edu, or Kyle Coffey, email: Kyle_Coffey@uml.edu.
Another way to receive pre-health information is to sign up for the Pre-Health mailing list. You'll learn about upcoming programs, panel discussions, personal statement workshops, MCAT test prep, etc.

Students who plan to graduate must fill out a Degree Intent to Graduate (DIG) form the semester before their intended graduation. This form documents the successful completion of their general education courses, the courses in their major, elective courses, and courses for a minor if they choose to have one. These forms must be filled out by the student, reviewed and signed by their faculty advisor, and submitted to the Department Chair for approval.
Commencement dates can be found on the Academic Calendar. Information about the Commencement exercises, and questions about the ceremony can be found on the Commencement website.
