Admission Reviews in Baccalaureate
Social Work Programs:
Is There a Role for Social
Work Practitioners?
Hope O. Hagar

Gatekeeping in baccalaureate social work education has received increased attention in recent years, and it has generally been acknowledged that screening for professionally suitable students begins with the admission review process (Born and Carroll 1988; Cobb and Jordan 1989; Gibbs 1994; Hepler and Noble 1990; McClelland, Rindfleisch, and Bean 1991; Moore and Urwin 1990, 1991; Peterman and Blake 1986; Taylor and Witte 1943). This position is clearly articulated in accreditation standards, which state that “criteria and processes of admission should be designed and implemented to accept from the group of applicants those who … are best qualified to become professional social workers at a beginning level of practice” (Council on Social Work Education, Commission on Accreditation, 1994:81). Further, the guidelines specify that “admission standards and processes should reflect an appreciation for the requirements of the profession” (82).

This chapter would not have been possible without the exceptional work of the Adjunct Admission Committee affiliated with the Social Work Program at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Special thanks are extended to Diana Birnbaum, Larry Hagar, Theresa Hengel, Chris McGraw, and Paul Ranum.
