Transfer Credit Policy

If you are admitted to the program prior to completing a bachelor’s degree, your admission will be conditional until we receive the final transcript from your undergraduate institution. 

Students who have taken graduate courses at another accredited institution may transfer up to six semester hours of credit toward the MSW. A minimum grade of B is required for transfer credit. Transfer credit requests are subject to review and approval by the dean of the Graduate School of Social Work and should be submitted prior to admission.

BSW credits considered for transfer to the advanced-standing program must be from a CSWE accredited institution and be completed within eight years of matriculation. In no case will credit be given for life experiences.
