Professional School

The Office of Professional School Advising (OPSA) is a Department located on campus designed to help develop students into a top candidate for a chosened Professional School. Specifically, OPSA advises students on the below Professional Schools:

  • Dental School
  • Law School
  • Medical School
  • Nursing School
  • Physical Therapy School
  • Physician Assistant School
  • Pharmacy School
  • Podiatric Medicine
  • Veterinary School

One of the main questions students ask is, "What should I choose as my major?" The answer is quite simple: Pick the major that will make you the must successful student!  Professional Schools do not give preference to one major over the other. They do, however, take grades and entrance exams quite seriously. So, pick the major that will help you achieve that 4.0 and enjoy your studies during your undergraduate years.
