UW OSHKOSH MSW UPDATE
UW Oshkosh Collaborative MSW Program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education through June 2018. Students who are currently enrolled in the MSW Program at UW Oshkosh will be able to complete their degree here at UW Oshkosh. The current MSW curriculum will be offered through June 2018.
UW Oshkosh MSW Program has suspended new admissions and will not be accepting new applications for the program for the Fall 2015 term. Plans are underway to redevelop the MSW Program at UW Oshkosh with an anticipated opening of Fall 2016. The new program will likely focus on health care and mental health care practice. As plans are solidified and procedures established, updates will be posted on the Department of Social Work Web-page. If anyone would like additional information please contact the Department of Social Work Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that such transitions take time to be implemented and the Department of Social Work will provide additional information as it becomes available. The Department of Social Work appreciates the patience and support of social service agencies, alumni, students, potential students and those concerned about high quality social work education.

UW Oshkosh and UW Green Bay Collaborative MSW Program
The Collaborative Masters of Social Work (MSW) Program became a reality in Fall 2003 with the admission of the first class of students. A joint venture of the UW-Green Bay and UW Oshkosh Departments of Social Work, the Collaborative MSW Program prepares social workers for leadership in careers of Direct Practice or Administration and Management.
For more information contact Dr. Doreen Higgins, MSW Program Coordinator, UW-Green Bay.
UW Oshkosh Graduate Students
1. MSEP -- Midwest Student Exchange Program. Did you know that students from Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin can all participate in the MSEP? Students from these states can attend participating schools, such as UW Oshkosh, for 150% of in-state tuition. For undergraduates this makes attending UW Oshkosh less expensive for Illinois students than attending some Illinois state schools. The same may be true for the graduate program. Students don't need to do anything special to qualify for the "discount." It is figured into their tuition when they apply.
2. Student/Faculty Collaborative Research Proposals Due Feb. 13, 2015-- Please mark your calendar for the upcoming deadline of Feb. 13, 2015, for Student/Faculty Collaborative Research proposal submission. A call for proposals will be announced late in the Fall semester and proposals may be submitted after the announcement is made.
This is yet another potential funding source for graduate students!
This announcement came out from the UW Oshkosh Grants Office.
