Summer New Student Program

Incoming MSW students are required to attend an on-campus Summer New Student Program session prior to Fall Orientation. Summer sessions will be held at the School of Social Work.

An email was sent out in May to all incoming students to let them know when they are eligible to register for a session. The email will also provide available summer session dates. Sessions will be held in conjunction with registration dates; however, if you are unable to attend the summer session on the same date as your registration, note that we will have summer session dates the week prior to and during the week of Fall Orientation that will not have registration on the agenda.

Summer New Student Program sessions will run from 8:30am to 5pm. Lunch will be provided. Call the Office of Student of Student Services for questions or to sign up for a session: (734) 936-0961.
