All BSW students in the School of Social Work are required to participate in mandatory advising every semester, including summer sessionsStudents cannot register for classes until they have met with an academic advisor each semester. 

During the advising session the student and the academic advisor review the student's progress through the program, discuss course pre-requisites, and develop an academic plan for completion of degree requirements. The advising session is also utilized to inform students of deadlines and to explain the petition process in case a student wants to request a curriculum variance. 

Academic advisors are also available for walk-in hours during specified times. These times are set aside for simple questions that do not require an individual advising appointment. Admitted undergraduate students may call 602-496-0800 to set up an advising appointment.

In addition to the academic advisors, all BSW students admitted to the professional program are assigned a faculty advisor. The role of the faculty advisor is to provide career guidance, serve as an advocate, and help students problem solve. 

Prospective undergraduate student advising is also available.  If you plan on transferring from a community college or other university or college, you may contact  Karla.Moreno@asu.edu.  Engaging in this process will enable students to make informed decisions about the best time to transfer to ASU's School of Social Work.
