We have put in a great deal of thought into the development of the PreMedical and PreDental Advising Office website, and have used our past experience to include information that students frequently request. Before reaching out by email, phone, or making an appointment, please check the office website FIRST – you may find that we have already provided an answer to your question!
Current UMBC students and UMBC undergraduate alumni can schedule a pre-health advising appointment via our online appointment scheduling portal (below). Appointment times are opened on a rolling basis (no more than 2 weeks in advance), so if all of the appointments are currently booked, please check back on the next business day. Walk-in hours are not available at this time.
Incoming UMBC undergraduate students are eligible for Health Professions Advising after they have accepted an offer of admission to UMBC. In order to receive the best advice possible, incoming students must wait until their transfer coursework has been received, evaluated, and applied to their UMBC records before they make an appointment with a Health Professions Advisor.
Prospective UMBC students and those in the process of applying to UMBC are not eligible for one-on-one Health Professions Advising appointments. However, they are invited to explore the PreMedical and PreDental Advising Office website to learn more about preparing for health professional school at UMBC. Representatives from our office also frequently attend events sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, so please take advantage of those opportunities. Prospective students or applicants may direct questions about the UMBC admissions process to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
During Advance Registration, one-on-one appointments may be limited to students who are in the final phases of preparation for their application to professional school. Group Advising sessions will be provided for students who still have first- and/or second-year BIOL and CHEM coursework in progress or planned for future enrollment. You can read more about those Group Advising sessions – and how to choose the one that’s best for you – under Events.
In addition, the pre-requisite sheets are always available, here.
