KU BSW Completion Program

The 2+2 BSW Completion Program is a new course of study offered as a partnership between the School of Social Welfare at the University of Kansas (KU) and the Kansas City Kansas Community College (KCKCC) to provide upper-level social work courses in the Kansas City area. The program is targeted to those individuals who are completing or who have completed an Associates degree and who are interested in pursuing the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree, but who are unable to come to the Lawrence campus.

Students enrolled in the 2+2 BSW Completion Program take the upper-level social work courses required for the BSW with KU professors who come to the KCKCC campus. All upper-level social work courses, and 3 social work elective courses, will be available on the KCKCC campus. Two elective courses will be offered in Spring 2005, one elective will be offered in Summer 2005, and the required BSW curriculum courses will be offered starting in Fall 2005.

Like other transfer students, students enrolled in the 2+2 BSW Completion Program must complete all courses required for the BSW degree, including lower-level liberal arts requirements. Transcripts will be evaluated to assess the number of transfer credit hours and the completion of requirements. As with other programs at KU, only 64 credit hours are accepted for transfer from community colleges.

If you are enrolled in an Associates degree program and are interested in taking our elective courses in the 2+2 BSW Completion Program , you will need to complete an application to the University of Kansas for non-degree student status.

If you have completed an Associates degree and are interested in applying to take upper-division courses in the 2+2 BSW Completion Program , you will need to complete an application to the University of Kansas for degree-seeking status and an additional application to the BSW Program.
