Allied Health Smart Start Orientation

Smart Start Orientation provides Allied Health students with a realistic view of competitive admission processes and the commitment required to be successful in Allied Health programs. Completion of the Smart Start Orientation is mandatory before you apply to a Health Science program.

At Allied Health Smart Start students will:

  • Attend a general session that will cover information essential to all Allied Health applicants
  • Attend a breakout session that will give more specific information about your major or area of interest
  • Meet program directors, faculty, advisors, and career development specialists in the School of Allied Health
