Students eligible to apply for the part-time CalSWEC reimbursement program must be employees of a County Child Welfare Service, County Departments of Social Services, or the California Department of Social Services. All part-time applicants must provide a letter of support from their agency administrator/director. Students participating in the program sign a contract to return to their home agency to render 6 months of continuous and satisfactory full-time employment for each 15 semester units of CalSWEC educational support, at a level appropriate to a new MSW in public child welfare. Once contracted, the student receives full tuition and fees, costs for required books (up to $650 per semester), and a travel allowance. The travel allowance will be determined based on the two-way commuting distance from the student's home or work to the campus and/or fieldwork site and return to that location.
