BSW Advising Information

To enhance Baylor’s learning environment, the university’s undergraduate academic advisors offer services designed to help students formulate academic goals and develop their personal potential. In addition to selecting classes, professional and faculty advisors work with students in reviewing general degree plans and audits, finding and developing specific academic plans within a major or program, and achieving personal goals. To facilitate students in making important life decisions, advisors and mentors also connect students with departmental and campus resources as well as community and professional opportunities.

Students in the School of Social Work are required to be advised each semester.

Pre-Social Work Students
  • Less than 30 hours - advised in University Advisement, Paul L. Foster Success Center, Sid Richardson Building, 1st Floor, (254) 710-7280.
  • 30 semester hours or more - advised by Kayla Mize, Academic Advisor, 811 Washington, Room #220.13, (254) 710-7457.
Advising Instructions

Pre-social work students with 30 semester hours or more and students who are admitted to the major are required to be advised by Kayla Mize. You may schedule an appointment by logging in to the Student Success Collaborative using the link in the box on the right-hand-side of this page. 

During the advising season, which generally runs from the 12th class day until the end of the early registration period, you will be invited by email to make an appointment for advising. The link in this email, in case the email is lost, is also available on your Student Success Collaborative (SSC) page. When you log in, you will find the invitation at the very top of the home screen with a button that leads you to the scheduling calendar. 

Your advisor will have appointments available for up to two weeks in advance, with more appointments added weekly. If you are unable to find an appointment that fits your schedule, please continue to check weekly for additional times. Advisors will make every effort to schedule appointment times for all students to be advised before their registration dates.

If you need additional help with scheduling your advising appointment, you can email your advisor or call (254) 710-7457. 

BSW Faculty Mentor Assignments

You have been assigned a faculty mentor whose role is to be of support to you in your professional, ethical and personal development. The relationship you develop with your mentor usually is the first extended personal relationship you will have with someone at the School. We encourage you to take advantage of this personal mentoring opportunity. Begin building this key relationship by contacting your mentor for a conversation.
