Social Work Program Admittance
Any student may 'declare' social work as a major at any time during his or her academic undergraduate study. However, declaring the major does not automatically ensure a student will graduate with the BSW degree. To be considered a candidate for the BSW degree, a student must be formally admitted to the major program.
To be considered for formal admittance a student must have the following:
Students who have met the above criteria may request an application packet and schedule an interview. Following the interview, the social work faculty will make a determination on formal admittance into the BSW program. The student will be notified in writing of this determination.
At the discretion of the social work faculty, a student may be admitted into the program 'conditionally.' This may occur when a student needs to improve his or her GPA, repeat a course, modify attitude or behavior, or another reason deemed appropriate. When this occurs, the student will either be notified in writing with the reason for conditional status or a meeting will be conducted with the student to explain the conditional status.
During preregistration each semester, students on conditional status must provide an update to his/her academic adviser on the issues related to the conditional status.
Students must formally be admitted into the Social Work program to enroll in the following:
For reasons outlined in the Social Work Handbook, a student's admission may be revoked. A student whose admission into the program has been revoked must wait one full academic year before reapplying for readmission. The application for readmittance is the same as the initial application process.
The Social Work program reserves the right to schedule a meeting for any reason at any time with any student admitted into the program to discuss his/her progress and pursuit of the social work profession.
