Registering for Classes
All students will register for fall term courses during the summer. In late May, once students have paid their enrollment deposit, they will receive an email from the Office of Student Services with regard to scheduling a registration appointment time and web-based group advising session. Students may also schedule an individual planning session if they would like after completing the web-based advising session.
Students who are currently enrolled or were previously enrolled at the University of Michigan must have all "financial holds" cleared from their student accounts in order to register. Students who think they may have a negative service indicator on their student account should call the Student Financial Services at 734-764-7447 to confirm or check via Wolverine Access. A negative service indicator will prevent a student from registering, and/or from receiving financial aid, an official transcript, and a diploma. Students must be officially registered to attend class and fieldwork.
Classes, including field instruction, begin on Tuesday, September 3rd unless otherwise noted on course schedules. The vast majority of social work classes are held in the School of Social Work Building or the adjoining School of Education Building. On occasion, classes may be held in other buildings as well. Typically, classes in the School range in size from 15-35 and generally employ a lecture and discussion format. Classes are taught by regular faculty, clinical faculty, and lecturers. A small number of courses will be taught by doctoral students. Additional information can be found on the following pages: School of Social Work course schedules; Academic Calendar.
