Checking your status:

  • After clicking on the icon that says “Check Status”, simply log in as you normally would for any VCU site such as Blackboard or email.
  • You will then see a screen that indicates the track you are pursuing, a list of declaration requirements and declaration workshops that you have attended.
    • If you have attended workshops for multiple health professions, please select     your desired track.  You may only declare one track at a time.
  • If you see all green checks, you are have declared your track and will receive a welcome email notification.
  • If you see a screen that lists the requirements but see some orange exclamation symbols, then you are missing a requirement.  You must fulfill those missing requirements to declare your desired track and therefore, you will have limited access to Pre-Professional Health Advising services.
