We welcome transfer students to our program. A bachelor degree in Social Work from Seattle University prepares graduates to enter the field as competent generalist practitioners committed to social and economic justice. Social Work is a dynamic and growing profession. Our students are active learners, very involved in our academic program and highly active in both on and off campus student organizations.
To transfer to Seattle University’s Social Work Program, the student must first apply to and be accepted by the University. The initial acceptance is made through Seattle University’s Registrar and the Office of Admission. The Office of the Registrar will initially determine which requirements have been fulfilled through the previous academic institution.
Accepted students who have an Associates degree granted by a regionally accredited Washington State community college and 90 credits will be admitted with junior status. Principles of Biology (BIOL 101) is required as lab science course. Social work degree candidacy applications are due January 15th of junior year. The student’s social work advisor, with the approval of the Program Director will evaluate University accepted transferred courses for approval for pre-requisite and social work foundation courses. Students may be asked to provide a course description and syllabus for this review. Only courses taken at an accredited social work program may be eligible for social work foundational course equivalency.
If you have further questions, please contact the Social Work Program Director, Mary Kay Brennan at (206) 296-5352. The following links are additional to the Current Students online references to further inform transfer students.
