Important notes:

  1. Supervised practices (SWGR 555, 655, 665) for the full-time student will be offered in daytime settings. Because we have a limited number of night time scenarios for part-time students, they will be assigned by competition based on interviews.
  2. The SWGR 671 course is taken the last semester of the program for students admitted before August 2012. Students who were admitted as of August 2012 take the exam in two parts: fundamentals and specialization. It has an additional cost. The student has three opportunities to take it.
  3. The courses are not approved with a D grade, they must be approved with C or more. C-approved courses do not have to be repeated, as long as they do not affect the average. Minimum graduation average is 3 .00.
