MSW Program: Accepted with Stipulation

Completion of Bachelor's Degree

Terms of Stipulation

This stipulation will be lifted when an official transcript showing the completion of an undergraduate degree and the date conferred is received by the Office of Social Work Student Services. The degree must be completed prior to starting the program. If you are graduating the semester prior to starting MSW Program coursework and do not think your degree granting institution will be able to provide a transcript showing your undergraduate degree and date conferred prior to the start of MSW Program coursework, please contact socialwork@msudenver.edu. If this item is not met per the specified timeline, the student will be dismissed from the Program.

Required Next Steps

  • If you are receiving your undergraduate degree from MSU Denver:
    • The Office of Social Work Student Services will verify the conferral of your degree from the internal system. No addtional steps are required from the student.
  • If you are receiving your undergraduate degree from a school other than MSU Denver:
    • Upon conferral of the undergraduate degree, submit official transcripts to the Office of Social Work Student Services showing the degree has been conferred. Transcripts can be submitted in one of the following methods. Please do not submit any materials to the Office of Admissions at MSU Denver.
