Four-Year Degree Guarantee

PSU pledges that full-time freshmen who sign an agreement will get the support and courses necessary to graduate in four years. For details on how the 4YDG works click here. The agreement for the 4YDG is available online.

Requirements for SSW Four-Year Degree Guarantee Participants:

1. While anyone can declare a major in the School of Social Work, students are required to be admitted into their major in their Junior year in order to take major requirements. Participation in the Four-Year Degree Guarantee program is not a guarantee of admission to a major.

2. You are required to review the Degree Map for your major.


Beginning the 4YDG Program:

1. You are required to attend a PSU orientation in order to start classes at PSU. We strongly encourage you to attend the earliest session possible since you will be registering for Fall term during your orientation.

2. After you attend orientation, you must schedule an appointment with your assigned 4YDG adviser prior to the end of Fall term. When you schedule your appointment you must identify yourself as a 4YDG student. Contact the School of Social Work Pre-Admission advisor Kate Constable at
