Academic advising in the Explore Center is a very individualized process. There are no pre-set class schedules or programs for our students, because every student has different skills, values and professional goals that help determine the best academic plan for them.
Advisors work one-on-one with you to determine what your academic goals are, or in some cases, to even help you set those goals. Those goals will then assist you and your advisor in determining the best academic plan for you.
It is highly unlikely that any Explore Center student will have the exact same class schedule since there are so many possibilities! It is important that you meet with your advisor at least twice a semester – once for academic or pre-professional planning, and once for course selection – to ensure that you are on the path toward academic success.Schedule an Appointment
A good place to start on the path to self-discovery is to determine if you can clearly define and describe your interests, skills, and values. These three components, and how they intersect, will play an important role in connecting you with possible majors. Explore Center workshops address these components and many more while moving students toward major exploration.
If you are a pre-health or pre-law student, you will benefit from the many workshops that address the various areas outside of coursework that are crucial toward gaining the experiences necessary for successful application to your future professional program. This could include preparing you for an entrance examination, exploring shadowing and volunteering experiences, or learning how to prepare financially for a professional school.
