Once admitted, a student may request permission from the MSW Coordinator to take a waiver exam(s), but only after consulting with an academic advisor first. A student must clearly show qualification to take the exam(s) through provision of information pertaining to similar courses completed. If granted, waiver exams will be scheduled at the student’s request during a waiver exam window. Each waiver exam may be attempted only once and the student must receive a score of 84% or higher in order to earn the waiver. Academic credit for life and/or previous work experience will not be given, in whole or in part, in lieu of the field placement or coursework.
Students in the totally online cohort are ineligible for the waiver exam(s).
