Pre-health Advising Welcome

UPDATES on Advising Appointments and Drop-in hours:

Due to COVID-19 and the departure of many students from campus, all Pre-Health Drop-in Hours and advisement appointments will be virtual until further notice.

NOTE: Drop-in Hours will now be GROUP Online Advising Hours: MWF 8:30-9:30 AM, TR 3:30-4:30 PM (Eastern Standard Time Zone)

Please be aware that the Virtual Drop-In Hours via Bluejeans will be an open space to conduct group advising sessions online.  Anyone with the link below can enter the Bluejeans space at any time, so it's not the space for personal conversations.  If you have general questions, the "Bluejeans Group Online Advising Hour" is the place to be.  (Schedule an appointment on GradesFirst for more personal conversations.)  You can use Bluejeans through your web browser or download the app.

Note Regarding FERPA, student privacy, and virtual advising:

Due to public health concerns, Georgia Tech is unable to offer in-person advising at this time.  We are offering students the choice to conduct advising via videoconferencing, but must convey that this method does make ensuring FERPA privacy difficult.  Advisors will conduct video advising in a private location, and recommend that students do the same to limit the amount of information which could be overheard by others in the vicinity.  By agreeing to video conference-advising, students are confirming they understand this situation.

Welcome to Georgia Tech Pre-Health Advising!
