Master’s in Social Work
Dear MSW Alumni,
As we begin the final semester of our MSW program, we would like to communicate with you about your records from the MSW program. We have met with the registrar to determine the best course of action for your records. As of May 2019, all MSW records will be kept with the Department of Social Work for 5 years after graduation. After the completion of 5 years, any records we have on hand will be shredded in a confidential manner. At this time, the records available to you from your file are your Field Education Evaluations, and all of your School Social Work records (if applicable).
The registrar’s office will keep your transcript on file indefinitely. Please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance in obtaining your transcript.
If you wish to have any part of your MSW record sent to you, we would be glad to do so. Please fill out the attached form and send with an email to Nick.Placido@asbury.edu or Susan.Thimons@asbury.edu to request those records.
If you graduated the years of 2010-2014, your records will be past the 5 year mark this spring. Any requests for records must be made before May 1st to guarantee we will still have your records on hand. For all requests, any requests sent after May 1st will be handled on August 15th, as our offices will be closed for the summer.
It has been a blessing to work with you through our MSW program. We hope you are well, and always enjoy getting updates on what you are doing next! Please feel free to reach out to us to give us updates, or invite us or our BSW students (on-campus and online) into what you are doing.
Nick Placido, Psy.D., M.A., M.S.W.
Social Work Department Chair,
Director of MSW Program
