Advising & Support

The College of Global Public Health is dedicated to supporting you throughout your academic journey. From academic advising help on major requirements and course sequencing, to connecting you to academic support like tutoring and help with paper composition and editing, we’re here to help you.

Academic Advising

Academic advising is available for all GPH students at all levels – learn more below on the specifics for your degree program:

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students completing one of the combined majors through their home school, in collaboration with GPH, should plan to utilize their advisors from both schools - their home school advisor for questions related to department requirements and GPH for questions about global public health requirements: experiential learning requirement, GPH course sequencing, study away, etc. Please contact GPH for further guidance.

UG students with questions should email for Dean Julie Avina directly for assistance.
