Do you have a quick question for an advisor?  do you have a general question for one of the HPO staff?
We would love to chat with you!

Online chat is for Rutgers, New Brunswick students with questions about their interest in pursuing a career in the health professions and/or specific questions for the HPO.
If you are enrolled at another school at Rutgers, please contact an advisor at your school.

General Questions/Schedule an Appointment


A green checkmark means an HPO staff member is available; a red X means that there currently isn't anyone available.
HPO staff are typically available Monday-Friday 1:00pm - 5:00pm

With limited staff during July & August, if you have a question for an HPO advisor and Live Chat is unavailable, please feel to take advantage of HPO Walk-in hours.

What can I ask under General Questions?

  • A quick general question that you would normally ask one of the HPO office staff.
  • To schedule a Webex or phone appointment with an HPO advisor

When should you use Ask the Advisor?

  • For a quick advising question that is fairly general and does not require a half-hour Webex appointment.

PLEASE NOTE: In-person HPO advising sessions are currently suspended.  

Advising through this office is only available to Rutgers - New Brunswick students 


It is recommended that currently enrolled Rutgers students meet with an HPO advisor at least once a year to make sure they are on the right track for their future goals.  Students can meet with HPO advisors more often if they have questions regarding classes, programs, etc. 

There are currently three ways students can go about speaking with an HPO advisor:

  • Virtual Walk-in Hours and Online Chat (Ask the Advisor option) 
  • Virtual Scheduled Appointments - 30 minute appointments that can be scheduled by logging on to Online Chat (General Questions option)
  • Email the advisor:  If you only have 1-2 advising questions, please email your questions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and one of the HPO advisors will get back to you.

For general questions, our friendly and knowledgeable HPO staff is available Monday - Friday (8:30am - 5:00pm) - Online Chat (General Questions option)
