College of Health Advisors

Academic Advising

College of Health advisors can help you build your academic plans and pursue your educational, career and life goals. Many health programs have specific admissions criteria, degree requirements and course sequencing. Advisors can help you navigate the requirements, complete your degree successfully and prepare for a great job in your field. 

Please note: Due to social distancing recommendations to prevent the spread of coronavirus, academic advising in the College of Health will be conducted through Zoom or telephone. Students may continue to use our main office phone number (907-786-1318) or email ( to schedule an appointment. Current students may also schedule through Seawolf Tracks and select a Zoom or phone appointment.
