The School of Social Work does not grant credit for either life or work experience in lieu of any required social work course or the practicum.
Students who have completed social work courses at other CSWE accredited programs will have their materials reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine comparability with Missouri State University social work requirements. Contact the BSW program coordinator for evaluation of those courses. In some cases, students will be asked to provide materials from the completed courses.
Courses in other disciplines (psychology, sociology, history) completed for transfer credit not automatically granted by the University registrar’s office will need to be evaluated by the department administering a similar course.
