BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE ACADEMIC ADVISORS

"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."

We have recently had two advisors leave our department for other opportunities, and a third advisor is currently only in the office part-time due to a previously planned leave of absence.  This leaves our office currently understaffed.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we hire and train new advisors. 

The BESC advisors see students by appointment. You can schedule an appointment with the appropriate advisor by using the link under their name below. 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.
