Important Policy Announcement
The School of Social Work has recently adopted two new student-related policies – SSW Standards of Professional and Ethical Conduct and Technical Standards of the Rutgers University School of Social Work MSW Program. These policies address professional and ethical conduct of MSW students.
Please review the Standards of Professional and Ethical Conduct for the MSW Program at the RU School of Social Work and the Technical Standards of the Rutgers University School of Social Work MSW Program. These standards, distinguished from academic requirements, describe the professional and ethical behaviors and attributes that provide reasonable assurance that a student can complete the entire course of study and participate fully in all aspects of social work education and practice.
You are strongly encouraged to review these policies as they do apply to you as a MSW student. You may view the new policies which are viewable via the MSW Student Handbook.
If you have any questions, please contact your academic advisor or call us at 848-932-7520, ext. 3.
