Transfer of Credit

Graduate courses successfully completed at another institution may be accepted for credit toward the master of social work (M.S.W.) degree, provided such courses are in areas of social work or are judged to be highly relevant to social work. A maximum of 21 transfer credits may be granted to a candidate for the M.S.W. degree at Rutgers. Approval of the assistant dean for student affairs is required.

A minimum grade of B is 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. Admissions officers and student affairs staff review student transcripts and any identified coursework meeting criteria for transfer credits. Admitted students will be notified of transferable credit prior to submission of the admission deposit, confirming enrollment. Other graduate credit that may be equivalent to coursework within the M.S.W. program can also be considered by the Office of Student Affairs once the student has been admitted. Course syllabi are typically needed for evaluation of courses.

A maximum of 18 credits may be accepted from the credits gained through professional credit courses.

Academic credit for life experience and previous work experience is not given in lieu of the field education practicum, generalist curriculum courses, or the specialized curriculum.
