Our program is in the accreditation process with the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and has been granted Candidacy Status. Candidacy Status is an important milestone toward accreditation. When the MSW achieves accreditation, all students accepted to the program while the program is in candidacy will be retroactively recognized as having graduated from a CSWE-accredited program. The accreditation process takes three years, and the CBU MSW is on CSWE's February 2019 accreditation schedule.
