Explore the GSSWSR's partnerships with local colleges, universities, and agencies.
The GSSWSR is committed to partnering with local colleges, universities, and agencies to provide pathways for undergraduate students and practitioners to attend the GSSWSR and earn their M.S.S. These partnerships have been developed through articulation agreements that identify eligible majors and undergraduate courses that may transfer to the M.S.S. program. Undergraduate students who apply through an articulation agreement may transfer up to three undergraduate courses into the M.S.S. program that will count toward their master's degree requirements. These students are also eligible for a guaranteed tuition grant award. See below for more information on these partnerships.
