What is AdviseStream, and how is Health Professions Advising utilizing the system?

AdviseStream is a new centralized advising system being utilized as a resource by many advising offices at the university. Health Professions Advising has used AdviseStream for our Recommendation File Service for several years, and will now begin to use the system to help undergraduate students and alumni schedule appointments, track experiences, and help manage portions of the application process for medical school and other health professions programs. 

Most current Northwestern undergraduate students and recent alums already have access to AdviseStream, and can log in using your netID at

You will most likely have access to two sides of AdviseStream: one specific to your academic unit (Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences, School of Communication, etc.), and one related to your status as a pre-med/pre-health student. You will access both aspects from the same login and home screen – as a pre-med or pre-health student, you will simply see an extra bar on the left side of your home screen with a blue “pre-health” heading.
