Advising

MSU LibraryAdvising in a professional school is an important activity. In the academic advising conference, the academic advisor reviews with the student what courses are needed to complete academic program requirements. Career advising provides students with opportunities to discuss a variety of professional topics such as career goals, aspirations, opportunities, and professional practice concerns.

The academic advisor is experienced in curriculum planning and knowledgeable about the University’s administrative structure, procedures, and resources. A primary objective of the advising conference is to enable students to maximize use of University resources to achieve their academic, career, and personal goals. However, the achievement of these goals is the responsibility of each student.

All undergraduate students receive academic advising from the School’s Undergraduate Academic Advisor. The Undergraduate Advising Office is in Room 153 Baker Hall. It is recommended that students schedule an appointment with the School of Social Work undergraduate adviser by using the online appointment system.
