    University. Please see page 26 of the 2014-16 Graduate Catalog for the full policy.

    CANDIDACY POLICY

    Any student enrolled as of July 2014 is subject to the following candidacy policy:

    Candidacy status is the recognition by the MSW Program that the student is progressing satisfactorily in the

    program towards graduation.

    Criteria for candidacy approval include:

    A minimum QPA of 3.0 after completion of 12 credits (9 credits for full-time advanced standing students).

    Satisfactory progress in field education.

    Completion of all courses registered for, with the resolution of X or I grades.

    If a student does not meet these criteria:

    The student will receive a letter from the Director of the School of Social Work indicating why candidacy was denied.

    An Academic Review meeting may be scheduled.

    A copy of the denial letter will be provided to the Dean of the College of Health and Human Services.

    Denial of candidacy may result in a recommendation to the Dean for dismissal from the program or the student may be placed on probation for at least one semester and dismissed from the program if

    a 3.00 QPA is not achieved by the end of the probationary period.

    The Registrar will be apprised of the applicants denial/approval of candidacy.
