Transfer Credits

The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University recognizes that credits gained in previous educational endeavors may be comparable to courses offered in our social work program.

To be eligible for transfer, courses must have been completed with a grade of a “B” or better within the past 7 years.

At the time of your application, you will be able to provide a transfer credit request form and syllabi for the courses you would like to be considered for transfer credit.

The Mandel School does not grant social work graduate course credit for life experiences or previous work experience. Transfer credit is awarded at the discretion of the assistant dean of student services.
