MSW Advancement to Candidacy


Advancement to Candidacy

Each student must file an application for Advancement to Candidacy indicating a proposed program of graduate study. This procedure should begin as soon as the classified graduate student has:
  1. Removed any deficiencies in Admission Requirements;
  2. Completed at least 28 units with a minimum 3.0 GPA; and
  3. Obtained approval of culminating experience.

Full-time students will need to complete their Advancement to Candidacy by February 1 of their first year in the MSW program. Part-time students will need to complete their Advancement to Candidacy by February 1 of their second year in the MSW program.

Advancement to Candidacy forms are available on the Office of Graduate Studies web page, but we HIGHLY suggest you use the MSW Advancement to Candidacy Templates provided on this page as most information has been entered for you.  You should fill out the rest of the form after planning a degree program in consultation with an advisor.
