Transfer of Credit

A minimum grade of Bis required for transfer credit. Graduate courses for which transfer credit is sought must have been completed within the last six academic years in order to be considered. Transfer credit requests are evaluated following matriculation into the program. Transfer credit evaluation forms are available through the student services office, which coordinates the process.

Graduate courses successfully completed at another institution may be accepted for credit toward the M.S.W. degree, provided such courses are in areas of social work or are judged to be highly relevant to a social work program. A maximum of 24 accredited transfer credits (from another graduate school of social work) may be granted to a candidate for the M.S.W. degree at Rutgers. Approval of the dean`s office is required. Course syllabi are needed for evaluation of courses.

A maximum of 18 credits may be accepted from the credits gained through professional credit courses. Only 3 elective credits (one elective course) will be accepted for transfer credit.

Academic credit for life experience and previous work experience is not given in lieu of the field practicum or of courses in the professional foundation or the advanced program.
