Transfer Students

Transfer students complete the Graduate application and follow the instructions to submit all application requirements. Applicants are strongly encouraged to include a letter of recommendation from a faculty member at their previous institution as one their three reference letters.

Graduate coursework that has been completed at a CSWE accredited institution will be considered for transfer credit toward the MSW at the time of admission. Other graduate credit that may be equivalent to coursework within the MSW program can also be considered once the student has been admitted. The Rutgers SSW will consider equivalent courses that have been completed within six years of application and where a minimum grade of B was earned.  A maximum of 18 credits may be transferred toward the Rutgers MSW degree. Students may be asked to submit course descriptions and/or syllabi to verify equivalency of transfer credits.  Professional work and/or life experience may not be considered for transfer credit to the MSW.
