The Office of Advising and Student Services (OASS) partners with faculty and staff in the College of Science and Health (CSH) to provide academic advising and student services to undergraduate and graduate CSH students. The office offers specialized advising to all DePaul University pre-health students, who are interested in pre-professional programs. Additionally, the office provides advising to undergraduate students seeking assistance with identifying and applying for internal and external research opportunities.
Advising and student services include, but are not limited to, pre-health advising, advising on research and internship opportunities, guiding new and continuing students on course selection and registration, providing consultation on academic policy interpretation, coordinating graduation, and identifying study abroad opportunities.
Further, the OASS collaborates with our campus partners to foster and support Student Success.
