Departmental Advising

Meeting with your program's major advisor regularly is imperative to ensure you are on-track for completing your degree. Advisors also can help you plan to receive a minor or complete a concentration study. See the listing below for the name and contact information of the advisor for your major.

College of Arts and Sciences Advising

Social Work

Faculty and staff in the Social Work Program value a close working relationship with students and feel that careful advising and mentoring are critical. Students who declare a pre-major in social work and/or are admitted into the program are assigned an advisor.

Students can schedule half-hour appointments with an Academic Adviser as needed when they have questions about their major program, class scheduling, or any issues related to their academic progress at Oakland University
