Advising Information

The advising process provides pre-professional level social work majors and social work majors with opportunities for participating in personal, academic, and career self-assessment. The advisement of social work students is an important component of the Department of Social Work. In order to ensure that courses are taken in proper sequence, pre-professional level social work and professional level social work majors are required to see an advisor prior to registering for classes. Pre-registration advising begins as soon as the class schedules are available. Specific dates assigned for pre-registration advising in the department are announced on campus and in social work classes during the Fall and Spring semesters. All students entering the Social Work Program are classified as pre-professional level social work majors. These students are advised by the designated social work faculty member to try and insure that they are on and continue on track for meeting the requirements for admission into professional level of the social work major and to graduate. To be advised, students are expected to:

  1. Obtain his or her degree requirement sheet from the School of Behavioral and Social Sciences' Administrative Assistant in Strauss 208.
  2. Make an appointment with his or her advisor. Appointment schedules will be posted on the office doors of faculty advisors.


After the student is advised, their advising flag will be removed and they will be allowed to register on Banner.
