Graduate Social Work Program Expectations For Student Learning

Graduate Social Work Program Expectations For Student Learning

  • Students are expected to consult with faculty advisors in planning course work and discussing learning goals and progress toward those goals during their graduate education.
  • Students are required to maintain no lower than a 3.0 GPA during the entire MSW program of study to remain in "good standing."
  • All written reports and term papers are to be prepared in a manner that reflects scholarship, including appropriate literature review, annotations, bibliography where appropriate, and citations when references are used.
  • Any student who misses 20 percent or 1/5 of the clock hours offered in a particular course may be required to repeat that course. This would represent three clock hours in a 1-credit course, six clock hours in a 2-credit course, and 9 clock hours in a 3-credit course. This is a minimum standard and each professor is free to set a higher standard for class attendance. The final decision related to the need for a student to repeat a course rests with the faculty member.
