MSW Program’s Policy on Pre-existing Work and Life Experience
While the LU-MSW Program respects the candidate's work and lifetime experiences, these experiences are not counted toward any credit or grade outcomes. Therefore, credit for life experience in accordance with the mandates of the Council on Social Work Education will result in no credit given for life experiences. Students will not receive academic credit for life experience or previous volunteer, service-learning activities or assignments, or work experience in social work. Academic credit will not be granted for life experience or previous work experience, and such experience will not be substituted for any of the courses in the academic, professional foundation, or field education areas.
