Advising and Registration

Academic Advisement - Who, what, when, where and how?

Advisors ensure that students are completing social work courses in the scheduled developmental progression, provide guidance regarding completion of remaining university and cognate requirements, and discuss students' interests for their field placement, graduate school, and future employment in the profession.  Advisors also provide alternate pin numbers each semester.  Junior and Senior students who have been accepted into the BSW program are assigned a faculty advisor to meet with each semester until they graduate.

Schedule an advising appointment:  October and March are the months to remember to schedule a time for advisement for the next semester.  Check your OWLS email for instructions and links to schedule an appointment, or click on the appropriate link below.  Please do not call the Social Work department to schedule an advising appointment, as it is an online process.

If  you have any questions and/or you did not receive the instructional email, please contact Dr. Dana Schneider at schneiderd1@southernct.edu.
