Carrie J. Smith, MSW Program Director, 315-443-5562.

The advanced standing program is available only to people who have graduated within the past 10 years from an undergraduate social work program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education, and who earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 in all social work course work. Eligible students are granted advanced standing of 24 credits and complete 36 credits of graduate study as a full-time or part-time matriculated student in the School of Social Work.

Advanced standing applicants who have received a grade below a B in required undergraduate courses in human behavior in the social environment, policy, or research will be required to take the comparable course in the graduate program. Graduate elective credits may not be used to achieve this requirement. Applicants with a grade below a B in foundation practice courses are not eligible for the advanced standing program and may apply to the 60-credit M.S.W. program. Both the regular and the advanced standing program can be completed on a part-time basis.

The advanced standing program includes two courses in the summer and one full academic year as a full-time graduate student or two full academic years as a part-time student. Advanced standing students complete the 36-credit concentration-level curriculum.
