  • Pass/No Pass Credit Option: Rutgers will provide the Pass/No Credit option to all undergraduate students due to the continuing disruptions caused by COVID-19. The Pass/No Credit option will also be available to all MSW students for the Spring 2021 semester. If you believe your academic performance will be adversely affected this semester (Spring 2021), you have the option to change one, more than one, or all of your courses from letter grading to Pass/No Credit grading. You may opt in for Pass/No Credit from May 6th through May 19th. Check your e-mail for a message from Assistant Dean Arlene M. Hunter on April 10 for more information.

  • COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement: All School of Social Work students taking classes at any Rutgers campus location must be vaccinated. Students enrolled in fully online degree programs (typically defined as having no access to on-campus facilities) will not need to provide proof of vaccination. Learn more and get answers to frequently asked questions.

  • New Jersey Vaccine Distribution for Social Workers & Students | According to the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs (DCA), social workers and social work students/interns who are not licensed but work in a health care setting, long-term care facility, and other locations where they are at high-risk to exposure to the virus are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through Phase 1A of the state's COVID-19 vaccination rollout. For more information, please view this update from NASW-New Jersey. Additional information on vaccine distribution will be shared when available.
