Advising is an important part of your educational experience at SU. Each social work student is assigned an advisor in the Department - your GullNet account will list his or her name.
You will meet with your advisor once in the fall and once again in the spring to talk about your plan for the following semester. Advising appointments are scheduled via GullNet - it is your responsibility to make sure you schedule your appointment!
Advising is the time to ask questions about your course of study or any other questions you may have related to your education. Advisors can also talk with you about your post-graduation plans. Remember, your advisor has been in the same seat you are in now and is a great source of information!
After you have met with your advisor, you will be cleared to register for the following semester. Make sure you come prepared to your advising meeting and are ready to register once your registration period opens. Classes fill up fast!
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.
