Office of Student and Academic Services (OSAS)
The mission of the Office of Student and Academic Services (OSAS) is to support Non-Degree, BSW, MSW, and PhD students during their academic program. OSAS also serves as a resource liaison in connecting students to appropriate services and administers the admission process. We take pride in providing a student friendly environment for students to succeed.
Fall Semester Office Hours:
Monday - Friday, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm, by appointment.
Any student wishing to request an appointment can email SSWStudentServices@uconn.edu. We will send you a meeting link via Nexus.
For students that need assistance after 4:00 pm, we will make special arrangements to accommodate you.
We will continue to offer individual and group sessions (notifying students via list-servs) throughout the semester, with a variety of options during the first 8 weeks of the semester to ensure that we answer any questions you may have about registration, program plans etc.
