Advanced Standing MSW Students

Advanced standing in the MSW program is awarded to students who have earned their BSW from a Council on Social Work Education accredited program, have met the advanced standing admission criteria described in the admissions materials, and are recommended for  advanced standing by the Admissions Committee. Applicants accepted with advanced standing status are required to complete three online, two-credit summer courses that provide new content and serve as a “bridge” to the advanced year of the MSW program. Advanced standing students are admitted into the MSW program for May of each year. The Advanced Standing program consists of 46 credit hours.  Applicants may apply to complete the program full-time over one year or extended over two years at the University of Maine campus in Orono. The distance program option is also available to advanced standing students.
