However, neither classroom nor practicum course credit will be granted for such life experience, even when it relates directly to social work. A student who has previously earned graduate level credit from a Master of Social Work program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education must submit her or his most current transcript as part of the application process. A student may request that a course taken prior to enrollment in the MSW program be accepted as a substitute for a social work elective course. The determination of elective credit will be made after the student has been admitted to the program. TRANSFER STUDENTS POLICY Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) has formal policies and procedures for the transfer of credits from other accredited colleges and universities, including the transfer of credit from other CSWE accredited Master s degree programs. The MSW program seeks to prevent duplication of academic content by recognizing prior educational achievement. Transfer of credit from another accredited Social Work Program requires a final grade of B or better and approval of the Chair of the Admissions Committee. The Chair reviews transfer requests on a case-by-case basis and may request the course syllabus or course description so that it may be compared to the equivalent course at FGCU. The faculty member who teaches the course at FGCU may be consulted. Students may also be asked to provide details regarding course content and examples of written work. Students may transfer into a graduate program at FGCU a limited number of credit hours from graduate level courses completed at a regionally accredited college or university or equivalent foreign institution. The following are University guidelines concerning transfer of graduate credit:
5 1. Unless otherwise specified by the individual graduate program in question a maximum of 12 graduate-level credits may be transferred into the college/program and applied toward the degree. 2. The University reserves the right to evaluate transfer courses on an individual basis. The date any previous coursework was completed and concordance of content to current program requirements are factors that may be used to determine course transfer and acceptance toward degrees.. Awarding transfer credit: a. Transfer courses must be applicable toward the graduate degree being sought at FGCU and must be approved by the college dean (or designee). Check with the individual program in question regarding restrictions on the acceptance of transfer credits, including any time limitations. b. Military Service: Official credentials from military service schools will be evaluated on the basis of American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations. Credit may be granted when courses are equivalent to those offered by FGCU; however, recommendations by the ACE are not binding upon the University. c. Transfer credits will not be computed as part of a student's FGCU grade point average. d. Accreditation status and evaluation of credits from an institution outside the U.S.A. must be made on a course-by-course basis by World Education Services, Josef Silny & Associates, Incorporated, or any other evaluation company approved by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). The applicant pays for this service and is responsible for contacting the evaluating agency directly. e. All transfer credit evaluations are completed after admission to the University. Only official transcripts will be evaluated. f. Transfer students from non-regionally accredited Florida institutions that follow the state common course numbering system may have a limited number of credits transferred. (FGCU Catalogue, : e+admissions&page=14 A limited number of transfer students are admitted to the MSW program each year. Students may request that courses taken prior to enrollment in the FGCU MSW program be accepted as substitute for social work elective courses. The following rules will apply in such cases: 1. The course was graduate level and offered by an accredited college or university 2. The course was taken in a CSWE accredited MSW Program. The course bears direct relevance to the master s level of social work education 4. The course was not used to meet requirement for another degree 5.
