Transfer of Credit for Social Work Courses
Students who wish to transfer a course to substitute for a required social work course should submit their transcripts to SBU’s Registrar’s Office for evaluation. With the exception of Introduction to Social Work, only social work courses taken at a CSWE accredited BSW program in which a “C” or higher was obtained will be eligible for transfer into the SBU BSW program. Transfer of credit will be evaluated on a course by course basis. Students may be required to provide additional documentation such as syllabi or a catalog description to assist with the process.
Transfer of credit for non-social work courses will follow established university guidelines, which can be found in the University Course Catalog. Additional assistance may be obtained through SBU’s Registrar’s Office.
Per SBU policy, at least one-half of the social work major must be completed at SBU. Additionally, the BSW program requires that all 4000 level social work classes be completed through SBU.
