    Master of Social Work Transfer Admission

    Students applying for admission as transfer students must first apply through the standard MSW admission process, then go through the transfer credit evaluation after being admitted to the program.

    Admitted students may request transfer credits for courses taken at another CSWE accredited graduate program. After this request has been made, all course syllabi completed within a four-year time period of the application (to be submitted by admitted student) will be reviewed by the MSW Program Director and/or faculty designee.

    Admitted students will then receive a determination letter, which outlines the previously completed course credits that will transfer into our program, along with the remaining requirements to be completed to earn their degree.

    In order to earn a MSW degree through St. Thomas, admitted students must complete at least 50% of their credits and their clinical field placement through our social work program.
