ADVISEMENT

Advisement is very important. We cannot stress this enough. The advisement process is critical in helping you develop your academic and career goals, identify your strengths and learning needs, progress toward graduation in an orderly fashion, find needed support services, prepare for graduate school, and evaluate your performance and aptitude for the field of Social Work.
In short, academic and professional advising policies and procedures are consistent with the Social Work Program’s goals and objectives and assures that you: 1) make the correct course selections; 2) maintain steady progress toward graduation; and 3) help establish that social work is the appropriate academic and career choice for you.

What is the procedure for advisement?

First time students to West Virginia State University will receive advising and register for classes during New Student Orientation. You should then make contact with the Department of Social Work during your first semester. You will be assigned a faculty member as an advisor.

You are required to meet with your advisor at least once each semester for help with course selection. During advisement appointments, you and your advisor discuss you career and curriculum plans, establish a tentative program leading to graduation, and review your progress.
