Academic Advising

We provide assistance to our students throughout the entire academic process. Our academic advisors assist students in planning their academic path and choosing coursework that meets all University and health care administration requirements for the major. Faculty advisors are typically assigned to students once they are admitted to the professional program major and work with them, in conjunction with the academic advisor, until they graduate.

Students entering the University with credits from another institution must schedule an advising appointment to plan their course of study. To schedule an advising appointment, call the College of Health Sciences Office of Student Affairs appointment line at (414) 229-2758. If you are unable to meet in person with your advisor, your non-UWM credits can be tentatively reviewed by sending a faxed or mailed copy of your transcript along with an explanatory cover letter to:
