Registration
Course Registration for incoming students takes place in early May 2014. The SP2 Registrar will email detailed instructions about the registration process and course offerings. Course registration information and instructions will also be available on the web at that time. If you have questions or concerns about course registration, please contact Isabel Boston, SP2 Registrar, at 215.898.5548 or at sp2reg@sp2.upenn.edu.

MSW Field Placement
Students do not arrange their own placements. Your field placement is a significant part of your academic record and, as such, must originate from SP2’s Field Education Office. The Field Education staff works in conjunction with you to ensure that your field experience will support your academic coursework and enhance your professional growth. For the Foundation Year (1st year)  and Advanced Standing students, the Field Education department reviews incoming students’ background, experience, and areas of interest to match students with agencies. Staff uses this information to make thoughtful decisions regarding where to place students. Students are notified of their placement by the Field Office, and will interview with their agency before accepting the placement.

MSW Waiver Exams
Waiver exams are offered for entering students who believe they have already covered the foundation content in SWRK 601: History and Philosophy of Social Work and Social Welfare, and SWRK 602: Human Behavior in the Social Environment. Advance registration for the exams is required. Registration will be available soon through the Pre-Orientation Registration page. The waiver exam for SWRK 615: Introduction to Social Work Research will be offered in the middle of the fall semester; details will be provided at a later date.

MSSP Waiver Exams
MSSP students are eligible to take a waiver exam for MSSP 630: Quantitative Reasoning. Please contact Caroline Wong (cwong@sp2.upenn.edu) for more information. The MSSP 630 waiver exam will be given Thursday August 21, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Caster Building (Room D-28).
