Transfer Students

Transfer students from other accredited MSW programs may apply at any time and may be accepted if space is available. Master of Social Work students interested in transferring to Indiana University must complete the entire IUSSW application and also provide the following additional documentation:  a) a reference letter from the previous MSW Program Director stating that the student left the program in good standing and verifying the student’s competence in the field of social work; b) an official transcript reflecting all completed MSW coursework; and c) a course syllabus from every MSW course completed to determine transferable credit in the IUSSW MSW curriculum.

This application is not subject to the same deadlines; it can be submitted at any time. Upon receipt of the completed application, the Admissions Committee will review the materials and decide if the applicant will be accepted into the program.  If accepted, the student’s transcript and course syllabi will be analyzed to determine which credits earned in another accredited social work program will transfer to Indiana University.  In all circumstances, however, the transfer student must complete all required courses in the chosen IUSSW concentration curriculum.
