The College of Health Professions and Social Work (CHPSW) provides academic advising to students who are preparing to enter Undergraduate and Graduate majors within the College. CHPSW houses the School of Nursing, along with the following Departments: Rehabilitation Sciences, Health Sciences, and Social Work. Academic Advising is provided to pre-majors, while majors are served through faculty in each of the Departments and School. The advising process begins with orientation and progresses with individual student advising until degree program requirements are completed.
Pre-major advising is provided by the CHPSW Advisors until acceptance into a degree program. A selected advisory from each Department and School will be assigned to students upon acceptance into a major. All pre-major students in the CHPSW are required to read the CHPSW Student Guidebook 2016 created for Lower Division Undergraduate Students.
The CHPSW Faculty Advisors are committed to providing guidance in academic and professional development in a collaborative and mentoring environment. The objective is to foster interaction between the advisors and students in a supportive atmosphere where students will achieve self-sufficiency while implementing their career and educational goals.
