UAAC Advising Services FAQs
Jump to a question:
- How do I schedule an appointment?
- Can I just drop by and speak with an adviser?
- Can I e-mail my questions to an adviser?
- I'm a freshmen premed, can I make an appointment to meet with a premed adviser before I attend a freshmen premed workshop?
- What's covered in your workshops?
The quickest way to make an appointment is by completing our online form or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Students can also call (847) 467-4281. Appointments are available in person (or by phone if off-campus).
All NU undergraduates are welcomed to use our Drop-In Hours:
- Mondays, 3:00 - 4:30pm
- Thursdays, 1:30 - 3:00pm
Students are seen on a first come, first served basis; no appointments are necessary.
Many times there's not a simple answer to the question and we need to have more information from you.
We find that it's more efficient for students to use our drop-in hours (see above) to get their initial questions and any follow-up questions answered right then. If they can't make it to drop-in hours, we're happy to set up a brief phone appointment for quick questions. Of course, if a student is not on campus (e.g. study abroad) we will do our best to correspond via e-mail. We also encourage students to read through the FAQs to see if their question is a common one.
4. I'm a freshmen premed. Can I make an appointment to meet with a premed adviser before I attend a freshmen premed workshop?
No, freshmen premed students must attend a freshmen premed workshop (a.k.a general premed information session) before making an appointment with the freshmen premed adviser. The freshmen premed workshops are designed to give a thorough overview of the premed process so subsequent individual appointments can be better used to answer questions specific to a student's concerns.
If freshmen have quick questions, they are welcome to use our drop-in hours (see above) without first attending a freshmen premed workshop.
If freshmen are interested in a health profession other than medicine, they may make an appointment without attending a freshmen premed workshop because those sessions are primarily focused on premed preparation.
Here's a complete list of our workshops and the topics we discuss in each one.
