Transfer Students

The social work program is a professionally accredited program by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). The curriculum must demonstrate continuity, integration, and sequencing of knowledge acquisition. This includes the core courses, related courses, and a structured sequence of social work courses.

If you are a transfer student, you must meet the same admissions criteria. If you are transferring from another accredited social work program, your coursework will be reviewed by the department chair to prevent duplication of academic content and ensure equivalent content of Wright State social work courses. If you are transferring from a social work program that is not accredited, your transcripts and courses will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for equivalent content as well as validation of the credentials of the faculty teaching the courses. You will be required to provide:

  • The institution's course catalog
  • A copy of the syllabus
  • Credentials of the instructor

Life/Work Experience

Per CSWE, you cannot receive social work course credit for life experience or previous work experience.
