ONLINE HMSV PROGRAM
The online HMSV program launched Spring 2012. This allows students to take courses asynchronously, or at a time that is convenient to students rather than set days/times. These web-based courses provide more flexible course scheduling to accommodate a student's work schedule. By Summer 2013, all courses will be offered via online format every semester (Fall, Spring and Summer). For questions about the online program and courses, please contact the Coordinator, Dr. Mark Rehfuss at email@example.com.
Beginning Fall 2012, HMSV 440W and 441 are no longer offered as hybrid. This change has been made based on feedback from students indicating that the amount of work required to successfully complete the classes is too much in hybrid format. Therefore, HMSV 368 will remain a co or prerequisite to 440W, but HMSV 368 as well as 440W will now solely be PRErequisites to HMSV 441. Students will now need to complete HMSV 368 and 440W in a minimum of one semester PRIOR to the semester in which they complete HMSV 441.
In addition, HMSV 339, 341, AND 343W are now PRErequisites to HMSV 447, 448, and 449.

ALL HMSV students may receive advising from the Career and Academic Resource Center (CARC). Main campus students are expected to obtain advising in person while distance education students may receive advising via telephone or email. Both group and individual sessions are available.
Group sessions: During the group session, you will be given general information about program requirements, prerequisites, and deadlines. You will be given the opportunity to provide your name and UIN so that the faculty can remove your advising hold. By providing your name and UIN, you will be agreeing to waive your right to an individual advising session for that registration period and accepting responsibility for the choices you make with regard to your course selections. At least four sessions will be offered each semester prior to pre-registration for the next semester. Dates and times for group advising sessions will be posted on the HMSV website at least six weeks prior to pre-registration each semester. Please visit the Academic Advising website for group session dates.
Individual sessions: On-campus and local Hampton Roads Higher Education Center students wanting an individual advising session should go to the Career and Academic Resource Center (CARC) located in the Education building, room 126. Walk-ins are welcomed! Otherwise, appointments may be scheduled by contacting CARC at firstname.lastname@example.org or (757) 683-6987. Students must use their ODU e-mail account when requesting an appointment. E-mails sent through non-ODU e-mail accounts will not be responded to. In the e-mail, please indicate your name, UIN, state the purpose of the advising session, and provide three days and three times you are available to meet with an advisor. Please note that students should schedule their appointments at least one month prior to pre-registration each semester to ensure they are seen in time to register for courses.
