The School of Social Work is in the process of applying for accreditation to the Council on Social Work Education, the national accrediting body. The UConn SSW MSW program has been continuously accredited since 1949. CSWE accreditation is a multi-step process utilizing a benchmark framework that includes program self-studies, site visits, and Committee on Accreditation (COA) reviews. While this is a 3-year process, initial accreditation covers those students who were admitted in the academic year in which the program was granted candidacy and they are considered to have graduated from a CSWE-accredited social work program. Following successful accreditation, a statement will appear on all transcripts of students who finish a bachelor’s in social work degree indicating completion of a Council on Social Work Education approved program.
