Non-Matriculated Study
 
 
Non-Matriculated Study is for students who want to transition gradually into graduate studies before applying for admission.


Students choose Non-Matriculated Study for a variety of reasons:
  • an eagerness to start coursework immediately,
  • an interest in exploring social work as a professional fit,
  • a desire to strengthen their candidacy for admission by demonstrating academic success at Fordham or
  • a preference to build confidence in academic ability.


MAXIMUM NUMBER OF NON-MATRICULATED COURSES THAT CAN BE TAKEN


A non-matriculated student may complete up to two M.S.W. classes per semester and no more than four classes in total, earning a maximum of 12 credits.


TRANSFERRING NON-MATRICULATED CREDITS TO THE M.S.W. PROGRAM

If a non-matriculated student applies and is admitted to the Graduate School of Social Service, any non-matriculated courses in which a non-matriculated student earned a grade of B or higher will apply toward the master's degree in social work.
