Greetings!

Due to the fact that your major is declared as Social Work and you have earned more than 45 credits, the College of Community and Public Service Undergraduate Advising Center has reviewed your academic record to gauge the likelihood of your admission into the School of Social Work’s Bachelor of Social Work program for Fall 2015.

Our review of your academic progress indicates that your admission status is: NOT YET

What does this mean?
