Matriculation is the process through which students are formally admitted into the Department of Social Work’s professional BSW program. During regularly scheduled advisement contacts every semester, the assigned Social Work Faculty Advisor guides each student in selecting required General Education/Liberal Arts classes, followed by enrollment in the three initial Professional Social Work courses (SW 230, 305, and 315). The semester following the students are eligible for matriculation. Students will be given more information about matriculation in SW 316-Human Behavior in the Social Environment II. Matriculation is a collaborative process between faculty and students, and includes an interview with two designated faculty members.
