Admission to health professions advising
There is no admissions restriction for enrolling in health professions advising at Holy Cross. Students in the class of 2016 and later may register with the Health Professions Advisory Committee at any time after they arrive at the College by checking the Health Professions box on the first-year questionnaire at Gateways orientation or sending an e-mail after the start of fall classes to the Health Professions Office. (There is no reason to do both!) Appointments to speak with a health professional advisor are made by calling the office. The health professions advisors will help students select appropriate courses at Holy Cross (or if necessary at other colleges in Worcester) to complete medical or other health professional school admission requirements while at Holy Cross. Students enroll in required course work as part of the standard enrollment process. The College will make every effort to accommodate as many students as possible in the appropriate courses.
Health professional advising is not a major, minor, or concentration at Holy Cross. There are no graduation requirements and no notation on official transcripts. We provide advising for students seeking entry to graduate programs in a wide variety of health professions.
