Academic advising is an integral part of each student's university experience. Each student is required to meet with an advisor each academic year and is encouraged to spend time with an advisor more frequently than that. Reviewing your academic program with your advisor each semester helps you keep you career at the college on track.
Advising is much more than simply a time to select courses for the next semester; it is an opportunity for you and your advisor to develop and evaluate the academic plans that will enable you to reach your academic goals. Achieving this mission requires a collaborative effort between students and advisors.
The purpose of academic advising within the College of Social Work is to support, guide, and assist current and prospective undergraduate social work majors with admission and progression, academic planning, career exploration, licensure, and resource referrals both within and outside of the University community. The academic advising syllabus provides a full overview of the purpose and process of academic advising.
