What Can I Expect?

All students who accept admission to the DL Social Work program are required to travel to campus for four days each January that they wish to maintain their status in the program. While there are no fees associated with this event, the average travel cost to students to attend this annual residency requirement is $1,250.00, depending on mode/distance of transportation and lodging choices. 

Students who do not attend the mandatory campus-based orientation/intensive will be withdrawn from classes and the offer of admission will be rescinded.

In extreme cases of a documented catastrophic event, the student may petition to the department to be excused from this requirement.  These waivers are rarely granted and in most cases students are encouraged to apply for an academic leave (if they have been in the program for at least one year) or they may be required to reapply for admission to the program in the following application cycle.
