MSW Non-degree Opportunities

You can take courses in the MSW program before being admitted by registering as a non-degree student. Non-degree students can take up to six credits (two courses) before they are accepted. The courses taken as a non-degree student will apply to your degree if admitted. Non-degree students are not eligible for financial aid and are not guaranteed admission to the MSW program.

What You Can Learn

Why Non-Degree?

Whether a MSW is right for you, taking some classes as a non-degree seeking student will help you make that decision. Our program prepares students to develop a strong social work identity grounded in social work values and ethics.   
As a non-degree student, you can enroll in GRSW 500, 540 and any 500-level elective course on a space-available basis after degree-seeking students have registered.
