Counseling Appointments are now available in Davis

In order to serve UC Davis students, Samuel Merritt University is pleased to announce that individual, one-on-one academic counseling appointments are now available in Davis. 

“Routinely UC Davis sends us the greatest number of applications for all programs at SMU,” says Anne Seed, Associate Director of Admission.  Ms. Seed continues, “And over the years, we have found students from UC Davis to be extremely prepared for the rigorous academic nature of our health science programs.  Finding The Work Shop, A Co-working Space, in downtown Davis, was the missing piece of the puzzle to allow us to meet UC Davis students where they work and live and go to school, IN DAVIS!” 

Intended for all academic programs at SMU, one-on-one academic counseling sessions are available by scheduled appointment.  For more information, please click here.
