"Behavioral Science Advising strives to provide outstanding educational and career counseling for students in effort to support individual student success and prepare students to make positive contributions in academia, employment, and their community."

The BESC advisors see students by appointment. Students seeking admission to the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) or Substance Use Disorder Counseling (SUDC) Certificate of Proficiency program will meet with the advisor whose queue includes their last name prior to receiving acceptance to those programs. If you encounter difficulties in using the online calendar to schedule an appointment with your advisor please call 801-863-6377 and request assistance from our office staff.
