Students wishing to transfer into the Steve Hicks School of Social Work’s Master of Science in Social Work program must meet all admission requirements and must be transferring from a program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education. Prospective transfer students complete the same application process as other applicants. Applicants must also provide a letter stating that they are in good standing from the director of any social work program attended.
Transfer students must complete a minimum of 36 hours toward the degree at The University of Texas at Austin to receive the Master of Science in Social Work. Beyond these 36 hours, a maximum of 24 hours of waiver credits may be granted. Students requesting waivers should submit to the Assistant Dean for Master’s Programs a transcript showing the completed course work and a syllabus for each course he or she wishes to be considered for waiver. Waiver credits do not appear on the student’s official University transcript.
