      • Criminal History
        Acknowledgement of a criminal activity is not automatic grounds for denying your application.  Please be aware that some agencies will not accept students in field placements who have a criminal history, past issues with domestic violence (as the aggressor), or abuse of children or vulnerable adults.  Some agencies will require a criminal background check.  Inability to complete the Field Placement component will prevent you from graduating with an MSW.  In addition, you should consult your state/jurisdictional law to determine any effect your past criminal history may have on your ability to become licensed in the state where you intend to work.  We encourage you to discuss any past issues with the Admissions Committee and/or state licensing body.
