First-Year advising

As a first-year student in the Pre-Professional Pharmacy program, you are assigned to Dr. Sarah Vincent as your academic advisor. Academic advising gives first-year students the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of:

  • Major specific and core required courses
  • Course selection, registration, and academic plans
  • Building internships and study abroad into your academic plan
  • On campus resources available at UNE

You are encouraged to schedule appointments to meet with your advisor on a regular basis and not just in the weeks preceding the registration process.

Faculty Advisor

As your faculty and academic advisor, Dr. Vincent is a great resource of information on curriculum-specific questions and insight on pharmacy school and career options in pharmacy.

Mandatory Pre-Registration Advising Meetings*

As a first-year student in the Pre-Professional Pharmacy program, you are required to attend mandatory Pre- Registration Advising appointments with Dr. Vincent in the fall and spring. You will be given an alternate pin number to use at the time of registration and will receive an email with details on how to sign up for these meetings. Until you attend a First-Year Mandatory Advising Meeting, you will not have permission to register for classes.

Mandatory Pre-Registration Advising Meetings must be completed during mid-October through mid-November of your fall semester and mid-March through mid-April of your spring semester. 

*A drop-in appointment or an appointment with a peer advisor will NOT complete this requirement.
