PAW participation is recommended during a student’s first semester.

Sessions are offered several times throughout the semester | Space is limited and walk-ins are not accepted | Sessions are two hours long | Dates may be subject to change.

Attention: Veterans and Military Students must gain acceptance into the major immediately upon completion of 60+ credits; a  funding impact is connected to pre-major status for junior and senior students.
