If you received a BSW from an accredited program within the past five years of your intended MSW start date, you are eligible for advanced standing admission.

Students may also qualify for advanced standing if they have received a BSW from an accredited program in the past 10 years and have social work practice experience or maintained active social work licensure during the past five years.

 If you received a BSW outside of this time frame, or if you have a bachelor’s degree other than a BSW, you are eligible for regular standing admission.
