Advising is meant to help student declare their major, but not less importantly to help students plan their schedule.
Once the Academic Advisor has made the student’s worksheet official, the student should meet with a BBB advisor who will assist the student in planning his/her major coursework. The advisors will approve the plan on-line.
Each student will be required to meet with a BBB Advisor prior to Advance Registration in the spring of their junior year. Notification will be sent to each declared major by the end of February. The BBB program provides walk-in advising daily to assist majors with course selection, major requirements and independent research. BBB suggests that students consult with an advisor at least once a year. Students may also meet with the program director to discuss specific issues.
BBB students who are considering health professional schools after graduation should also review the courses required for admission. More information can be found at http://www.vpul.upenn.edu/careerservices/gradprof/healthprof/med.html.
