Health Professions: Current Students Success Center

Welcome to the College of Health Professions Student Success Center

Academic advisement is essential to a successful educational experience. Students are required by the university to meet with an academic advisor at least once every semester but are encouraged to contact the advisor at any time with questions or concerns. Advisement dates can be found on the Academic Calendar. Your academic advisor’s name is located on your “Permanent Student Record”. Please utilize this page as a resource to aid in your academic success.

Degree Programs of Study

Associate of Science

The transferable degree contains coursework (Core Areas A-F) that can be completed in two years. Upon completion, the student may be eligible to apply for admission to an Armstrong health professions program or transfer to an applicable health professions program and complete a baccalaureate degree in that chosen field. Students seeking to apply to programs outside the University of Georgia System are strongly advised to contact the health professions programs of their choice on questions of transfer. Contact an advisor for detailed course requirements to prepare for a specific field of interest.

Completion of an associate of science degree or meeting minimum admission standards does not guarantee acceptance into a program. Students are expected to work closely with their academic advisor and financial aid counselor to ensure they gain knowledge of and meet eligibility requirements for financial aid and application to these programs.
