REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR CURRENT STUDENTS
The MSW Program Manager conducts academic advising for the purposes of creating and maintaining an educational plan that helps students identify and register for social work courses. Advisement is recommended but not required for registration. You might find it helpful to download your suggested degree plan template and map out a plan for fulfilling the requirements of your degree.

Variable Hour Courses
Any course with a "V" in the title (for example, SWO 5V80) may be set up as a fixed-hour or variable hour course. If the course is not set up for a fixed number of credit hours, it will default to one hour in the registration system. You must then manually select the number of hours for which you intend to register. Log into BearWeb and select Student Academic Services / Registration / Change Variable Hours and follow the instructions.
Please note: While the Garland School of Social Work provides resources to support and advise students throughout their degree program, it is ultimately the responsibility of the student to ensure they are registered for the appropriate courses and sections in order to progress through their degree program at their preferred pace.
