|Meet Our Advisors|
Our academic advisors are available to provide guidance and information about admissions, transfer and registration procedures, academic and degree requirements, course selection, special programs, student services, and other facets of Washington University.
My primary responsibility is to assist our students in the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical program design their course plan and navigate the medical school application process. I also advise students in our other health and science related programs. These include our bachelor’s programs in clinical research management and health science & administration and our master’s programs in biology, health care services, and clinical research management.
I advise University College graduate students and I oversee undergraduate advising. I am also the director of the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Studies program. I assist prospective graduate students in choosing and beginning a program. I help current graduate students with their academic planning and decision making to ensure that all requirements for graduation will be met. I also plan informational and social events for students and help connect them with other Washington University campus resources.
I work with prospective students to help them decide what options at University College may work best for their goals. You don’t need to be admitted to contact me with questions, I am happy to talk with anyone interested in courses. I also advise undergraduate and certificate students, working as a partner to help them succeed. As recruitment coordinator, you’ll find me at campus visits around St. Louis, information sessions, and other University College events.
Whether you are seeking a degree, advancing your career, or just taking a class for personal interest, you have many options at University College. Contact me to learn about registration, admissions and financial aid. Bring in your transcript and we can talk about transfer credits. I work with campus resources to coordinate our New Student Orientation each semester, and plan other programs to serve student needs. Stay in touch with your academic advisor – establishing a partnership can be an important key to your success.
Information on University College degree and certificate programs and courses is available free of charge to all current and prospective students. Prospective students should meet with an academic advisor to discuss their interests before applying for admission to a degree or certificate program.
Advising is also available to those who may be undecided about their academic goals or who want to become more familiar with college procedures before applying for admission.
Students who have been admitted to degree or certificate programs should consult with their advisors annually for program planning and approval. It is the student's responsibility to arrange these conferences.
University College welcomes transfer students. Prospective and current students who have studied at another college or university may request a free transcript evaluation by an academic advisor to determine transfer credit and remaining course requirements toward a University College degree or certificate. Official transcripts must be obtained from each school attended, and all records must be in English. Applicants for admission to a degree or certificate program should arrange for an evaluation prior to or immediately after applying for degree or certificate candidacy. More information about the transfer process is available on the Transfer Policies page.
