Admission Requirements

GPA: To be admitted into the Bachelor of Social Work program as a freshman/first-year student, your high school transcript must indicate a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.7. (Admission decisions are determined by all components of your application.)

SAT/ACT Scores: To be admitted into the BSW program as a freshman/first-year student, you must have a minimum SAT score of 970 or an ACT of 20. (Admission decisions are determined by all components of your application.)

If you do not meet these requirements, you still may be eligible for enrollment in the BSW program, based on a review by the BSW Admissions Committee. If the Committee decides to accept you into the program, you will be required to take lower-division social work courses in your freshman and sophomore years, completing those courses with a 2.7 or higher. This additional course work will help ensure your success in the program.
