Welcome to the Center for Advising and Counseling

The Center for Advising and Counseling (UCAC) is the administrative unit which can serve as the academic home for students who have attempted 30-plus hours of college credit and who do not yet met the admission requirements for one of the University’s degree-granting senior colleges. UCAC also offers an enrollment option and advising assistance for students working to meet the admission requirements to the Allied Health, Pre-Public Health, Pre-Dental Hygiene, and Pre-Pharmacy programs at the LSU Health Sciences Centers in New Orleans and Shreveport or Pharmacy Programs in Louisiana. Note: Pre-Nursing advising is available in the Center for Freshman Year.
