New Student Orientation

Undergraduate First-Semester Course Planning
with the College of Social Work

Orientation Modules, Connect with Academic College, Course Registration

Welcome to the University of Utah, and the College of Social Work. All new students must complete a virtual New Student Orientation (NSO). After paying your enrollment deposit and confirming your intent to enroll, you will register for NSO. Please complete the University NSO modules via Canvas – the Office of Orientation and Transition will provide access to these. Though there is no set timeframe, you will put yourself in a disadvantaged position if you delay completing the modules. After you complete the Canvas NSO modules, you must:

  1. Complete each of the Social Work Course Planning steps listed below – don’t forget to watch the videos, as they contain important information!
  2. Meet with a Social Work major advisor. You can schedule this appointment in advance, however you must complete everything mentioned previously prior to your meeting.
  3. Register for classes (NOTE: Students cannot enroll until they have completed the Canvas NSO Modules, the Social Work Course Planning steps listed below, AND met with their major advisor).
