You are ultimately responsible for making sure you have met
all of the requirements for graduation.
It is a good idea to
check on your program progress in GullNet to be sure you are
on-track. To do this, go to
http://www.salisbury.edu/gullnet/ and log in with your
username and password. When you get into GullNet, go to Self
Service and then to Student Center. There is a drop-down box on
your Student center page - look for Academic Requirements. This
will let you know how many credits you have taken, what Gen Eds
you have completed (or still need to take) along with your
progress towards completing the Social Work major.
When you come to your advising meeting during Program
Planning, be sure to know what courses you still need to take so
that the appointment can move along smoothly. If you come to the
appointment and don't have a clue as to what you need to take or
what you want to take during the following semester, you may be
asked to re-schedule your appointment. This is your education -
take part in it!
Be ready to register when your registration period opens
(this is listed on GullNet and your advisor will write it on
your planning form) - classes generally fill up quickly and you
don't want to miss out! The fine folks who oversee GullNet have
this handout to help you with registering for courses.
Something to keep in mind during registration that is
particular to the Social Work Department: we have classes at
four sites - Main campus, Chesapeake, Cecil, and Hagerstown.
Some sections of classes are limited to students at a particular
site - you will not be able to register for a class at a site in
which you are not enrolled as a student. Chesapeake class
sections are .651; Cecil class sections are .641; and Hagerstown
class sections are .661. Online sections vary, so be sure to
look in the course description to see if you are eligible to
register for the class.
Your advising appointments during Program Planning weeks in both the Fall and Spring
semesters should focus on your course progress and the
additional credits needed for you to graduate as planned. In
addition to this meeting time, your advisor is available
throughout the semesters to meet with you to talk about Graduate
School, career planning, or other academic questions you may
have. Be sure to send him or her an e-mail to set up an
appointment to talk about these important issues!

the Seidel School and is another good source of information. Her
