The Social Work department

to students of various ages and backgrounds. Students intending
to transfer to Avila from other schools are encouraged to contact
Maureen Carr at 816.501.3641 or email
in order to set up an appointment with a faculty member of the social work
department. Meeting with a faculty member early in
an educational career facilitates ease of transfer. Our social work
faculty are always happy to talk with you about our program and
answer your questions. Many students planning to transfer to Avila's BSW program will meet with a faculty advisor while they are still attending the community college so that they make sure to take the courses they will need here.

point average. Arrange for an official campus
