Academic Advising

​​​​​​We recommend that you meet with your academic advisor at least once a quarter to ensure you are on track for completing the Neuroscience major. Current Neuroscience majors will meet with the Neuroscience Program ​Academic Advisor, Sarah Finck.  

Newly admitted students and those exploring other majors, please meet with the Office for Academic Advising Support (OAAS).

Neuroscience students will also have an assigned Neuroscience Faculty Advisor. Your assigned Neuroscience Faculty Advisor appears in your BlueStar Student Success Network. 

  • Please contact Sarah Finck if you do not have a faculty advisor assigned, or if you would like to request a certain faculty advisor. 
  • Please see the Advising Umbrella in the Neuroscience Student Guide to better understand how each of your advisors can help.
Neuroscience Student Success Coordinator: Neuroscience majors can work with our Student Success Coordinator, Jaimie Engle, for matters outside of academic advising and course scheduling. For example, she can help with time management, study skills, goal setting, navigating various campus resources, and much more! Please call 773-325-8223, email Jaimie Engle​, or stop into the Neuroscience Suite (McGowan North 125) any time.

Career Advising: DePaul's Career Center has a Health Care & Science Career Community​. We recommend that you start working with the career center early on for assistance exploring and preparing for your post-graduate plans.

Pre-Health Advising: ​Interested in a health related career? There are many forms of Pre-Health Advising at DePaul University. There is the Pre-health Advising Committee (PAC), which is comprised of an interdisciplinary body of faculty and staff whose primary function is the academic advising of students intending to pursue a career in one of the health professions. We also have dedicated Pre-Health Advisors.
