College of Health Professions & Social Work Advising

Freshman Transition


Online Freshman Transition Workshops are offered by the College of Health Professions and Social Work (CHPSW) to welcome students to the College and provide specific information regarding their program of study. Prior to the online workshop, an Advising Hold is placed on the student's record to support the transition from First Year Advising to the college and to verify their progress toward graduation. Once a student attends CHPSW Advising required online CANVAS Transition workshop and completes intended pre-major quiz, the Advising Hold is removed to allow registration on the designated freshman priority registration date.
