Department of Social Work

Admission to the Program

Students must complete an application to the undergraduate Social Work program and submit it, either by mail or in person, to the Undergraduate Social Work Coordinator in Carman Hall, Room B-18. This application is separate from the application to Lehman College.

Students may submit the application for admission to the Social Work program after completing the following requirements or during the semester in which they are completing these requirements:

  • Minimum of 48 college credits, including
  • Introduction to Social Work (SWK 237)
  • Foundations of Sociology (SOC 166)
  • Minimum cumulative index of 2.7 

Students may complete the requirements at Lehman or the equivalent courses at another college if the credits are transferable.

Transfer students must include with their application to the Social Work Program all transcripts from colleges previously attended; student copies of transcripts are acceptable. Transfer students who have a lower cumulative index than 2.7 may apply to the Social Work Program after completing 12 credits at Lehman and achieving a 2.7 cumulative index.

Application forms are available in the Social Work Department office, Carman Hall, Room B18. Applications, including transcripts, should be submitted as early as possible during the semester preceding entry into the program. To discuss eligibility for admission and to plan your program, contact Catherine Cassidy, Undergraduate Social Work Program Coordinator, in Carman Hall, Room B-18, or call 718-960-6782. All students are encouraged to consult the Pre- and Co-Requisite Guide when planning their program.
