Community health advisors are here to help you with schedules, course selection, registration, tutoring, and career information.
We want to partner with you to ensure that your time in Community Health at Illinois effectively prepares you for your next step, whether that is a career, graduate school, or something else.
We are excited to work with you regarding your academic and career plans. If your last name begins with A-K, Hollie Heintz will be your Academic Advisor. If your last name begins with L-Z, Carol Firkins will be your interim Academic Advisor.
Our role is to assist you with registration and class selection, provide you with information about campus resources, discuss career interests and help prepare you for life beyond the University of Illinois.
Community Health students receive news about opportunities and important deadlines through a weekly e-newsletter, VITALS.
Scheduling an Appointment
Pre-registration appointments are mandatory for all Community Health students starting at about the 4th week of classes. Students schedule these appointments through an online scheduler. The Link for the Online Scheduler will be posted here when Pre-Registration Appointment Scheduling has opened each term.
You may schedule meetings with advisors regarding other topics unrelated to Course Planning throughout the year via our individual email addresses. Each advisor will also have weekly Drop-Ins available that will be included in the VITALS e-newsletter.
Non-Major students can connect with advisors via email with the advisor for their part of the alphabet:
Last Names A-K: Hollie Heintz email@example.com
