A “transfer applicant" is an applicant to the School's Master of Social Work Program who has been enrolled as an MSW-degree seeking student at another MSW program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) within three academic years of applying and accepting admission to the University of Minnesota's MSW Program.
- A transfer applicant must follow the same application procedure as all other applicants to the MSW program.
- A transfer applicant must include a letter from the Director of Graduate Studies of the program from which they are transferring that indicates the applicant is a student in good standing at the time of transfer.
- Transfer students must complete at least 61% of their graduate course work at the University of Minnesota School of Social Work.
- Students transferring to the full program may transfer up to 20 credits; students transferring to the advanced standing program may transfer up to 13 credits.
- Transfer students may transfer field credits.
- Transfer students must consult with the MSW Program Director to ensure transfer credits meet curriculum requirements of the School of Social Work.
- A full-program transfer applicant must include the field-placement evaluation received at the first school. Admission may be contingent on review of the final field evaluation.
