Human Services Technology Advisors

Students can find out who their advisor is by checking Self-Service. If no advisor is listed, students should contact Student Services at the Perry Health Sciences Campus. In general, advisors in the Human Services programs are assigned as follows:

  • General program: John Daniels
  • Substance Abuse students whose last name beings with A-K: Yolonda Edgerton
  • Substance Abuse students whose last name beings with L-Z: Donald Little
  • Mental Health students: Dawn Harvel
  • Gerontology students: Dawn Harvel

Students should contact advisors on a regular basis for information and planning assistance. Advisors can be contacted in person during office hours or by phone or email. Advisors will have appointment sign-up sheets on their office doors two weeks before registration periods begin. 

Students can print program planning guides from this website or access the catalog for a list of classes. Program planning guides will have classes listed as Fall I and Fall II, Spring I and Spring II to help students take classes at the right time and stay on track to complete their programs. 

Students can access program evaluations on WebAdvisor by clicking on the link on the lower right, clicking on their program code and then clicking "Submit." The evaluation will tell students which classes are still needed according to the year that they entered the program. 

If certain classes are no longer offered, students can usually take new HSE classes in their place. Advisors can provide more details.
