Social Work 2+2
Transfer to West Virginia University
Note: The “2+2” term is used to refer to a transfer agreement through which a student completes an Associate degree at WVNCC and finishes a Bachelor’s degree at another institution. Because of individual student factors, part-time or full-time status, need for transitional education coursework, scheduling and availability of courses, or other factors, all students may not be able to complete this degree in two (Associate’s) or four (Bachelor’s) years. The term “2+2” does not imply a guarantee that a student will be able to complete all requirements in four years.
Students completing this option will receive an Associate in Arts degree from West Virginia Northern. Upon completing the specified 61-66 credit hours at West Virginia University, they will receive a Bachelor in Social Work (B.S.W.) Degree.
Fifty-seven to fifty-nine hours (depending on what math courses are taken) of the 63-67 credit hours will transfer as equivalent courses.
In addition to the WVNCC courses, applicants for admission to WVU need to have an overall grade point average of 2.5, 100 hours of documented volunteer experience, a written personal statement and two letters of reference. Qualifying students will compete with other WVU students and transfers for 60 slots.*
Students successfully completing and receiving an A.A. degree under the 2+2 agreement with West Virginia University’s School of Social Work should be able to:
• Demonstrate knowledge of the history of the “human services/social work” profession and the evolution of its various delivery systems
*Although a cumulative GPA of 2.0 meets requirements for graduation at WVNCC, students who do not meet the GPA (or other special) requirements at the transfer institution for admission to this baccalaureate program may not be admitted to the program until they are able to meet those requirements. Students should consult with an advisor at the transfer institution early in their program to check on this, and other requirements for admission to the baccalaureate program.
