Transfer Students

We welcome transfer students from programs across the country and internationally. If you are thinking about transferring to the WVU BSW Program, we are ready to work with you to make your transition as smooth as possible. Contact BSW Program Director Dr. Megan Gandy at for more information

Transfer students, including 2+2 students, who wish to enter the social work major must contact WVU’s Office of Admissions and the BSW Program Director no later than the semester before you intend to matriculate to WVU. For entry to the BSW program, students must meet all requirements that apply to major status. Students who plan to matriculate to WVU in the fall semester at the professional social work major level should contact WVU’s Office of Admissions the prior December and complete the application to the BSW program for admission at the professional social work major level in January.

Upper-division social work courses taken at other institutions do not automatically transfer to WVU and meet the program’s requirements. To gain approval for these courses students must have earned a B or better in the course(s) and must submit course syllabi and other appropriate course materials to the BSW Program Director. Courses that are not approved count as electives. The lower-division social work courses taught on 2+2 campuses have received approval via the formal agreement with the program.

Current 2+2 Transfer Programs (for 2022-23 catalog year):
If your college is not listed here, that’s okay. You can still transfer credits into the BSW program.
