Are you interested in a health career?

Pre-Health students are those who want to become medical doctors (MD and DO), veterinarians, dentists, optometrists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and podiatrists. If you have any questions, please contact Erin Flowers, CSTEM Director of Student Services.

If you are a degree-seeking student at UA Little Rock

Pre-health is not a major so you will need to choose a major to be connected with an academic advisor. We have some preliminary information to help you choose a major that will meet your needs.

If you are a non-degree seeking student at UA Little Rock (i.e. just taking a few classes)

You do not need to be advised. You can contact Erin Flowers for assistance in registering for the classes you have chosen.

If you want to transfer to UAMS to complete a bachelor's degree at UAMS

If you are transferring to UAMS to become a radiology technician, respiratory therapist, dental hygienist, etc.: you will be advised by Frances Frazier in the College of Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences, and Education.

How to Change Your Major or Add a Major

How to Change Your Minor or Add a Minor

  1. Meet with your current major advisor to add or change your minor
  2. Get advising from an advisor in the department of your minor (your major advisor can help you connect with the correct person)
