Enrollment Status

Applicants request admission into either full-time or part-time enrollment status.  Full-time students complete the program in twenty-one months.  This requires enrollment in 15 credit hours in the Fall, 16 credit hours in the Spring, plus 4 credit hours of enrollment in the Summer session of the foundation year.  As specified in CSWE accreditation standards, part-time students have a maximum of four years in which to complete all degree requirements, including field practicum.  Part-time students are required to take six to eight credit hours during Fall, Spring and Summer sessions.  Please refer to the “Full-Time Program of Study” and the “Part-Time Program of Study” models found in the “MSW Curriculum” section of the MSW Student Handbook.

Most students are admitted into the specific enrollment status to which they have applied.  However, the MSW program reserves the right to limit the number of full-time and part-time students admitted in any given academic year.  Students who wish to change their status prior to their initial enrollment may have to postpone starting the program for a full year if all admission slots are full.  Once enrolled officially (e.g., tuition and fees are paid), students may change their status only with the written approval of the MSW Program Director and the Chair of the Department of Social Work.
