Yes! We are very happy to meet with transfer students and help assist you with planning your application to the social work program and your coursework.
Juniors and Seniors, please click on the BSW Course Progression tab to the left to preview which courses you should register for and when. Pre-majors will discuss their course selections with their advisors.
Yes! Social Work department faculty do not give out alternate pin numbers without first meeting with a student.
From the Southern home page, log into Banner (as if you were going to register for classes). Click on Records, then on Degree Evaluation. Make sure you are listed as a social work major. [If not, come to the department and complete a declaration of major form which can be obtained from the student workers or the department secretary]. Continue to follow the prompts, and select detail requirements to see your BSW program on the screen. The courses that have a NO next to them still need to be completed.
It’s normal to have questions about the registration process and your advisor is prepared to answer them. Some students prepare for advisement by writing down their questions and bringing it to their advisement session. If you still have questions after your advisement session, please contact Dr. Dana Schneider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
