Welcome from the College of Health Sciences Advising Center
Welcome to the College of Health Sciences! Our advisors are here to assist you in any way they can to ensure that your academic experience at Old Dominion University is a positive one. All Health Sciences programs require a secondary application for admission; admission to the University does not guarantee acceptance into Health Sciences programs. Until accepted into your intended major, you will work with a college advisor who will assist you with general education requirements, required prerequisite courses, and the application process for your major.
Each semester you will be required to meet with an advisor for a pre-registration appointment. In your advising appointment, we will discuss your major curriculum and academic goals, identify appropriate resources for any academic challenges you might be experiencing, and remove your advising hold. Advisors are assigned by last name:
A-F Katie Ferrara
G-O Keith Krepcho
P-Z Leanne White
Advising appointments for current Health Sciences students can be scheduled via MyAdvisor. When requesting an appointment, in the "reason for your visit" please identify the type of advising assistance needed. An advisor will confirm your appointment via email. If you are a new freshman or transfer student, you should register to attend Preview where you will meet with an advisor and register for classes. Transfer students with 24+ credit hours may contact their advisor via email to request an appointment. Always provide your name and UIN when contacting your advisor.
Be sure to come to your advising appointment prepared by completing a plan of classes in Degreeworks ahead of time. Please arrive promptly; students who arrive more than 5 minutes late to an advising appointment will be asked to reschedule.
The Advising Center is located in room 2112 of the Health Sciences Building between 46th and 47th streets. General questions can be answered via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 757-683-5137. We also encourage students to find us on Facebook or Twitter, and check out our The Script blog.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
