Meet UCI BioSci Student Affairs!

Your Helpful Guides to BioSci Undergraduate Education

When it comes to planning and progressing in your education here, there’s a special team poised to help. The academic counselors at the BioSci Student Affairs Office look forward to working with you to chart your educational path, to connect you with services, and assist you in making the most of your undergraduate experience.

One of their primary goals is to help plan your coursework, both in the short and long term. They provide guidance on degree requirements, schedules, university policies, research project opportunities and more. The counselors seek to ensure you explore all the possibilities during your years here and beyond.

If you are considering entering a health profession, the Student Affairs Office can provide specialized advising in those areas, from medical and dental to pharmacy, veterinary and more. Each counselor is trained as a Health Science Advisor and understands the specific procedures, requirements and timelines for applying to professional schools. While graduation may seem far off, it’s best to visit now to begin planning.

The counselors also meet with you periodically to review your progress, so you can be confident you are on track in your chosen major. You can get together with a counselor once a quarter, once a year, or on another schedule that works best for you.

The Bio Sci Student Affairs team assists in numerous other areas as well, such as referring you to campus support services, obtaining the Dean’s signature on necessary forms, and answering a variety of questions.
