Advisers for students majoring in Immunology and Infectious Disease, Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences.

What to bring to a meeting

If you are changing your major or scheduling classes, you must bring a completed academic plan to the meeting.

  1. Print a Degree Audit from LionPATH for that major.
  2. Print your current schedule ("course detail" format) from LionPATH.
  3. Print a transcript from LionPATH.
  4. Consider the following suggested academic plans:  Pharmacology and Toxicology | Immunology and Infectious Disease | Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences
  5. Most importantly, prepare an academic plan for every semester (PDF) until graduation.

Without these materials, it will be a short and unproductive advising meeting.
