Academic Advising

Office of Admissions and Student Services
Ritter Annex 521

Academic professionals serve as academic advisors to social work majors. Early and regular contact with the advisor can be extremely helpful. The advisor is a knowledgeable person with whom students may discuss issues of concern in relation to university regulations, as well as course selection.  Services are provided through the Office of Student Services and Admissions.

Academic advisors attempt to avoid errors when advising students about their program requirements but schools and colleges cannot assume liability for errors in advising. Therefore, students must assume primary responsibility for knowing the requirements for their degree and for acquiring current information about their academic status.
