Advising and Academic Planning

Academic and curriculum advising is offered to all students enrolled in the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare, as well as to prospective transfer students from other universities or UWM programs who are interested in the criminal justice and social work majors and degree programs. Our professional advisors are available to provide information for both majors and to help you understand degree requirements and university policies. Services include new freshman orientation, course selection, assistance with registration and review of transfer credit. Advisors are available by appointment Monday through Friday, or during walk in hours for undergraduate students. Please call 414.229.4852 to schedule an appointment.
