Transfer Students

The Social Work Department values transfer students. They often bring to the program a variety of life experiences, maturity, focus, and a desire to excel academically. Our classes are better for having students who have a different point of view to contribute to the ongoing discussion. We would like to make the transition to Augsburg’s BSW degree program as smooth as possible. There are several things you can do at your current school to prepare to continue your education at Augsburg. For students applying after the end of the regular school year, the summer deadline is August 1.

As a first step, we encourage you to connect directly with a member of our Transfer Admissions Team.  Your counselor can partner with as you attend your current institution to help you map out a plan that provides the most direct transfer pathway.  They are also here to assist you in exploring your transfer options at Augsburg and in navigating the application and admissions process.  Schedule your one one virtual or in-person visit today!  You can also check out our transfer-friendly policy and quick Auggie Transfer Tool by visiting our transfer website.

Steps for transfer students applying to the BSW Program:

  1. Apply to Augsburg University
  2. Meet with the BSW Program Director to discuss transfer credits, the application and information session schedules.
  3. Confirm your assigned social work faculty advisor with BSW Program Director
