The Pre-Health/Pre-Law Advising Center (PAC), formerly known as the Professions Advising Center, is a walk-in resource center for students interested in law, medicine (allopathic, chiropractic, naturopathic, osteopathic, podiatric), or the health sciences (dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, physician assistant, occupational therapy, physical therapy, veterinary medicine, etc.).

We're here to help!

Our mission is to guide students in discovering their paths in life and in transforming their professional dreams into reality.

PAC is staffed by peer advisors trained to help you clarify your career goals, choose a major, plan appropriate coursework, research professional programs, find opportunities to gain experience, and apply to schools. Come in and get started on the right track towards your professional career!

No appointment is necessary!

Come in for advising or to use resources any time PAC is open. Our normal hours are Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:00 pm.

PAC is located at the heart of the Mānoa campus, in QLCSS 101, on Varney Circle. For general questions, call (808) 956-4045 or e-mail

If you are not on island or unable to visit us in-person, webcam advising is available using software.
