School of Social Work - Pre-Candidacy Review (Maybe)

Greetings!

Due to the fact that your major is declared as Social Work and you have earned more than 45 credits, the College of Community and Public Service Undergraduate Advising Center has reviewed your academic record to gauge the likelihood of your admission into the School of Social Work’s Bachelor of Social Work program for Fall 2015.

Our review of your academic progress indicates that your admission status is: MAYBE

What does this mean?

Based on the information available to the CCPS-UAC at the time of review, it appears that you are missing some requirements for admission into the School of Social Work.

This review takes into consideration your coursework for Winter 2015 and assumes that you will successfully complete all of your currently in-progress work (including minimum grades, if applicable) and will maintain a 2.500 minimum cumulative GPA; if you do not successfully complete your Winter 2015 courses or do not have a 2.500 cumulative GPA after this semester, you should contact your academic advisor to discuss your status for Fall admission.

But wait! I already have to plan to complete these courses over the Spring/Summer at:

…GVSU

  1. When registering for courses, you will have to enroll in your Spring/Summer classes, then Fall, and then Winter.
  2. Social Work Registration Instructions
    1. Registering for the BSW program can be challenging due to the co-requisite courses- to avoid frustration, follow the instructions provided!
  3. Submit your Social Work application before Thursday, April 30th for early consideration.

…Another institution

  1. You must request special permission to enroll in the Fall and Winter Social Work courses due to not meeting the pre-requisite course requirements. Follow the steps outlined below.
  2. Social Work Registration Instructions (including how to request special permission)
    1. Registering for the BSW program can be challenging due to the co-requisite courses- to avoid frustration, follow the instructions provided!
  3. Submit your Social Work application before Thursday, April 30th for early consideration.

Uh Oh! I don’t have a plan to complete these courses prior to Fall 2015!

You will not be eligible to enter the School of Social Work in Fall 2015 if you do not meet the candidacy criteria. If you don’t intend to complete these requirements prior to Fall 2015, plan to register for any of the previously listed missing requirements in the upcoming academic year;

Do Note: Although PSY 303, PSY 360 or SOC 360, and SOC 382 or SW 300 are not required prior to admission into the BSW program, they are required prior to Fall 2016. If you are missing any, you should plan to include them into your 2015-2016 academic plan.
