School Social Work Practice Area
Post-MSW Degree Applicants
IU MSW graduates who did not do the Schools Practice Area (formerly “Concentration”) may request a review of their MSW coursework and post-MSW degree school-based experiences.* Credit toward the MSW Schools Practice Area endorsement is available for MSW graduates who can demonstrate substantive evidence of MSW school-based practice experience. In exceptional cases where IU MSW graduates can demonstrate substantive school-based experience where they are employed directly by a school corporation, the Schools Practice Area License Review Committee may provide the Schools Practice Area endorsement without requiring additional coursework.
In most cases, including MSW graduates with school-based community mental health experience, MSW graduates who did not do the Schools Practice Area as part of their educational plan will be required to take additional MSW coursework to qualify for the IDOE MSW school social work endorsement.
Inquiries about having MSW coursework assessed for the MSW Schools Practice Area, should be directed to Sheila Dennis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applying for Licensure
MSW graduates who have obtained the LSW/LCSW license and who have done the MSW Schools Practice Area coursework may proceed with applying for the IDOE School PEL School Social Work license.
