Undergraduate Admissions

The Fall 2023 Undergraduate Social Work Application will go live on March 1st, 2023. Click on the link or use the QR code below to access the application. This application is in addition to the application to Lehman College. Students must be accepted into Lehman College, before submitting application. Declaring Social Work as a Major does not mean that the student is in the program. Along with admission to the college, students must have the following four criteria items before submitting an application:

  • Minimum of 54 college credits
  • Minimum cumulative index of 2.7; (2.9 is recommended)
  • Completion of Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare (SWK 237)
  • Completion of Foundations of Sociology (SOC 166)

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.
