All Social Work majors must see an advisor prior to registration each semester. Advisors are available forty hours each week. Students may contact an advisor to make an appointment or walk-ins are welcomed during advising hours.
New students with less than 24 hours who have declared Social Work as their major will be classified as UCOL-SOCWINT. Transfer students with more than 24 hours who have declared Social Work as their major will be classified Social Work Intended and receive advisement through the School of Social Work. All other students are viewed as "undeclared" and receive advisement through the "University Advising Center":http://www.uta.edu/uac/ until they officially designate Social Work as their major.
When the student is admitted to the BSW program, a degree plan is generated, reviewed and submitted for approval.
Course rolls are reviewed at the beginning of each semester. Students enrolled in a course without completion of required prerequisites will be dropped from the course.
No credit is given for life and/or work experience. Applicants, whether new or former students, who have attended another collegiate institution may not disregard any part of their academic record except as permitted under the "fresh start" option (see Academic Fresh Start Admissions page.
