Criminal Charges and Convictions

It is the student’s responsibility to keep the School of Social Work updated regarding any criminal charges and/or convictions after they are admitted to the MSW program. This is in addition to the statement made on the University Graduate Application. The School of Social Work needs to be aware of any criminal involvement among its students because of its ethical obligations to field agencies and their clients. Some agencies will not accept students with a criminal record. Further, students with felony convictions might not be eligible for licensure as an LCSW in the State of Florida.
