Erikson Institute offers an advanced standing option within its Master of Social Work (MSW) program.
Students receive credit for their BSW experience, allowing them to bypass select courses to graduate in two years — saving time and money, and gaining a competitive edge by entering the workforce faster, and with more opportunity for career advancement. Up to 28 credit hours can be waived. The number of credit hours waived is determined in a case by case basis and not every applicant who applies will receive advanced standing status nor the maximum course waiver of 28 credits. The MSW program does not grant course credit for its degree program based on life experience or previous work experience.
