Checking your status:

  • After clicking on the icon that says “Check Status”, simply log in as you normally do 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 requirements and workshops attended.  If you see all green checks, then you are on the track and will soon be assigned to a Pre-Professional Health Advisor.
  • If you see a screen that lists the requirements but see some orange exclamation symbols, then you are missing a requirement and until those requirements are fulfilled you will not be on the track yet, and therefore have limited access to Pre-Professional Health Advising.
