The Additional Term(s) Option curriculum schedule is an option available to all full-time students who would benefit from spreading the 60 semester hours required in the MSW program over five or six semesters. The option is also available to students with advanced standing status who spread the required 45 credits over four or five terms and Jewish Communal Leadership Program (JCLP) students who spread their required 75 credits over six or seven semesters. The additional terms of enrollment allow students to enroll in fewer courses in a given term. Students using the additional term option may feel less pressure and have more time to concentrate on their coursework. Students planning an extra term option often will delay their date of graduation. Students must develop an academic plan with their advisor. The Additional Term(s) Option plan must be approved by the MSW program director, assistant dean for enrollment management and the student’s advisor and field faculty.
