Academic Programs / Health Professions
The College of Health Professions and Social Work has an extensive system of academic advising provided by professional and faculty advisors. Professional Advisors, coordinated by the Associate Director for Advisement, are located in each department, where they provide assistance with such topics as: registration, course scheduling, and transfer credits, as well as referral to other resources. For a complete listing of our professional advising staff, visit the Student Advising web site at http://chpsw.temple.edu/chpsw/students/student-advising.
In most departments, when students reach junior or senior standing, they are assigned to faculty advisors who assist with mentoring as students progress in their professional training.
Academic advisors strive to avoid errors when advising students about program requirements; however, the College cannot assume liability for errors in advising. Students must, therefore, assume primary responsibility for knowing the requirements for their degree and for acquiring current information about their academic status.
