The Online Master of Social Work (MSW) Part-Time Advanced Standing Track is offered completely online and allows students with baccalaureate degrees in Social Work from a CSWE-accredited school/program who demonstrate academic potential and professional maturity to complete the MSW degree in four semesters of graduate study.

To be considered for advanced standing admission, the bachelor's degree must have been completed within six years of the time of initial enrollment in the master's program.

The MSW program strives to educate students to become successful practitioners in the field of clinical social work. To that end, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics is reinforced throughout the academic curriculum. Students who violate the NASW Code of Ethics may be subject to academic sanctions or dismissed from the program.

Students who apply for admission to the Online Part-time Advanced Standing track will not be permitted to switch to the on-campus, face-to-face track due to the strict cohort model followed by the online program.

This track is completed entirely online and charges an enhanced tuition rate. As such, Online MSW students are not permitted to simultaneously enroll in any graduate or certificate programs through UCF. Please visit UCF Online for additional information about tuition and fees.

Please note: Social Work (MSW) may be completed fully online, although not all elective options or program prerequisites may be offered online. Newly admitted students choosing to complete this program exclusively via UCF online classes may enroll with a reduction in campus-based fees.

International students (F or J visa) are required to enroll in a full-time course load of 9 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters. Only 3 of the 9 credit hours may be taken in a completely online format. For a detailed listing of enrollment requirements for international students, please visit If you have questions, please consult UCF Global at 407-823-2337.

UCF is not authorized to provide online courses or instruction to students in some states. Refer to State Restrictions for current information.

This program has potential ties to professional licensure or certification in the field. For more information on how this program may prepare students in that regard, please visit
