The Office of Pre-Professional Advising in the Creighton EDGE offers a premier pre-professional advising program to all students that’s unlike any other university.

The Creighton Pre-Professional Scholars Program (CPPSP) provides qualifying students the opportunity to be a part of our extraordinary guarantee program. Each CPPSP program requires an application with specific requirements.
