The University of Nevada, Reno, School of Social Work has an advisement program to support and direct pre-major and major students in their learning and to screen students according to professional standards and requirements. After attending an orientation session, pre-major and major students are assigned to faculty advisors who will assist them throughout the program. It is very important that social work pre-majors and majors see their advisors once each semester. During these meetings, the advisor and student typically review the student's academic work, discuss areas of weakness and strengths (e.g., writing skills), and explore volunteer experiences, field practicum interests, graduation requirements and scholarships, as well as employment and career opportunities. Beyond this, students are encouraged to see their advisors when academic guidance or support is needed.
Pre-major students should make an appointment online.
In order to schedule an appointment, you must register in the system. It will then prompt you to log in and schedule the appointment yourself seeing the advisor's availability. The system requires all fields to be answered. All appointments are for a 30 minute block.
If you have questions about scheduling an appointment please contact askDHS@unr.edu
