Transfer Applicants

A minimum grade of B is required for transfer credit. There are three classifications of transfer credits:
    1. Students who transfer from a Council on Social Work Education accredited graduate social work program and have completed one full year including field education, within the last six years, may be granted credit up to the equivalent of one year of the MSW program. Due to different curricular patterns in MSW programs, it may be necessary to revise the second year course of study to insure all requirements for the degree have been met.
    2. Students who transfer from a Council on Social Work Education accredited graduate social work program and have completed less than a full year, within the last four years, may be granted credit for MSW courses to be applied toward the MSW degree. The specific number of credits is determined by the Director of Student Services.
    3. Students transferring from a graduate program and have completed some graduate work within the past four years may be granted a maximum of nine (9) credits. These courses are generally applied toward elective credits. Credit requests are evaluated following matriculation into the MSW program.

Once accepted students are matriculated into the program, a request for a transfer credit review should be sent to sswstudentservices@uconn.edu. Transfer credit requests are subject to final approval by the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.
