The above sequence is intended for those students without transfer of credit. If you do have transfer of credit or are wondering how your transfer of credit might impact your course sequence please schedule an appointment with your Student Success Advisor to go over your best registration plan.

SOCW 2001 and 2002 (first two BSW Core courses) should be taken together once all Gen Eds are completed, as they are 11 week courses that complement each other; if a student wants to start their Core earlier, they need to have ENGL 1010 and SOCI 1001S completed.

* Walden quarters typically start September, December, March, and June. If you took HMNT 1001 starting in mid-October, mid-January, mid-April, or mid-July please use the Midterm Start Schedule.
