Why Seek Academic Advising?

For many students, the transition to university can be daunting, and often times overwhelming. Whether those students are embarking on this educational journey right out of high-school, or after spending a number of years in the work force, our team of Academic Program Advisors is available for consultations every step of the way.


Advising for new students is done in a group setting.  Students are encouraged to make arrangements to meet with an Academic Program Advisor periodically throughout their social work program.

Faculty of Social Work Academic Program Advisors are available to meet with students to discuss:
  • Preparation for application to the BSW Program;

  • Course selection that aligns with the student's individual interests and aspirations;

  • Course sequencing and how transfer credit is used to meet program requirements;

  • Course registration and planning a balanced schedule;

  • University of Regina policies and procedures, as well as academic rules and regulations governing the student's program;

  • Strategies for academic success including returning to good academic standing when students are on/at risk of academic probation, or returning from a period fo discontinuance;

  • Academic options surrounding personal/family emergencies;

  • Convocation application deadlines and processes;

  • Various services to help ease transition to the University of Regina and ensure success all the way to convocation.

PLEASE NOTE: THE ULTIMATE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ENSURING THAT THE PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS ARE SATISFIED RESTS WITH THE STUDENT.
