For many students, the initial 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 may consist of group sessions or individualized appointments with a Faculty of Social Work Academic Program Advisor.  Students are also encouraged to make arrangements to meet with an Academic Program Advisor periodically throughout their BSW Program in order to clarify any doubts or concerns they may have.
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.
