Sign up for the Social Welfare email list
UWTBASW is an electronic mailing list for current BASW students. This email list will provide you with reminders of upcoming deadlines, registration information, job and internship opportunities, special events, graduation information and more. Once admitted to the BASW Program, students are automatically subscribed to the listserv, prior to the quarter of admission.
Advising and degree planning
You are encouraged to use the online Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) to check on progress toward your degree. DARS is a useful tool but it should not replace one-on-one degree planning with an advisor.
- For quick advising questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Advising appointments are scheduled online at http://tacoma.uw.edu/advising.
