Students may take 5000-level social work classes for graduate or undergraduate credit without being enrolled in the MSW Program. Students may transfer such credits into their MSW degree program if:
A maximum of eight (8) hours of graduate credit, taken as a non-degree-seeking student, can be transferred into the Full Program and six (6) hours into the Advanced Standing Program. Taking classes as a non-degree-seeking student does not guarantee acceptance to the MSW Program.
For information on registering for classes as a non-degree seeking student contact the graduate program coordinator.
Other courses at the 5000-level can transfer to the MSW program as electives.
While graduate tuition is considerably more expensive than undergraduate tuition per credit hour, taking a course at the graduate level allows students to transfer credits to the MSW or YDL program in the future (assuming the previously mentioned criteria are met). Graduate School tuition rates and fee information is available on the OneStop tuition page.
Students may want to take classes before being enrolled in the Youth Development Leadership Program.
Please email Cindy Pavlowski if you are interested in taking classes with the intention of applying to the YDL program.
Students who qualify for the Advanced Standing Program should consider 5000-level courses (excluding the 5051 and 5101 foundation courses above) and 8000-level courses. At the 8000-level, students must meet the course prerequisites and obtain permission from the instructor.
