Appointments with an Advisor

The Taneja College of Pharmacy offers two types of advising appointments, Pre-Admissions and Admissions. Please carefully read each appointment type to ensure that you meet with the appropriate advisor. If you’re looking for a general information it is highly recommended that you attend an upcoming InPHARMation Session.

Please note that advising sessions are not intended for us to review your transcript, evaluate how competitive you are as an applicant or where you may stand in the applicant pool. The process of reviewing applications and evaluating applicants is what occurs as part of our admissions process.
