“We are excited to partner with SWIC in offering an opportunity for all those who have received their AAS in Human Services Technology to come to Greenville University and complete their 4-year Bachelor of Social Work degree. To ease the transition, students with the AAS in Human Services Technology can transfer 12 credits or 4 classes from SWIC and use them towards the 46 credits required for the BSW major. Completing a BSW degree from Greenville University, a program accredited by the Council of Social Work Education, will open up significant opportunities for these students to serve their communities in the field of social work or continue on with their graduate degree in social work.”

Greenville University is proud to partner with Southwestern Illinois College to provide future social workers with the best possible opportunities for success. For more information about this enrollment agreement, please contact Greenville University Admissions at 618.664.7100.
