Applying to the Program

Individuals wanting to complete a social work degree will initially be considered pre-social work majors. Every pre-social work major must work with a faculty advisor in social work prior to applying for the program.

Pre-social work majors must have completed 60 credit hours of coursework, including SOCW 260 Introduction to Social Work and be enrolled in SOCW 380 Generalist Practice: Introduction to Practice, before making formal application to the program.

Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in each social work course, a 2.75 or better grade point average (GPA) in the major, and an overall cumulative GPA of at least 2.50.

The Council on Social Work Education accredits the Social Work Program at Fort Hays State University at the undergraduate level. In accord with the Council on Social Work Education's evaluative standards, the Social Work Program does not grant academic credit for life experience or previous work experience.
