A pre-major and transfer social work advisor will meet with you individually to help set academic goals, plan or change a course schedule, evaluate transfer credits, and plan your coursework prior to admission to the baccalaureate program. Following acceptance into the program, you will be assigned a permanent social work advisor. Your advisor will provide academic and professional guidance through the BSW curriculum. To schedule a meeting with an advisor using Starfish, please find the contact and office hours for our BSW Advisors below.
