SOWK 365: Gate 2 Course

SOWK 365: Gate 2

Gate 2

SOWK 365 (Gate 2) is the field enrollment process for SOWK 370: Junior Field Experience. Gate 2 is a prerequisite for Junior Field and must be successfully completed in the semester before when the student intends to complete Junior Field Experience.



You are eligible to apply for SOWK 365 (Gate 2) once you have met the following criteria:

    • Minimum GPA of 2.5
    • Successful completion of SOWK 294 (Gate 1 Approval)
    • Successful completion (C or higher) or current enrollment in the prerequisite courses for Gate 2 during the semester you are enrolled in SOWK 365:
      • GLST 220
      • MATH 115+
      • PSYC 255
  • SOWK 300
  • SOWK 355 *


*While this intensive course runs the full 8-weeks, only one week of that requires live instruction in a virtual classroom format. Attendance for the full five days (8AM-5PM EST, M-F) during the intensive week is required for passing this course. This policy is non-negotiable and required for all BSSW students.*

The first assignment due in each Gate course is submitting a Degree Completion Plan Audit (DCPA) to ensure that the student meets the eligibility requirements for the course. If the DCPA does not reflect successful completion (C or higher) or current enrollment for each of the appropriate Gate prerequisite courses, the student will not be eligible to successfully complete the course. If the student is unable to successfully complete the course, he/she will need to re-enroll for the course in a later semester.


Effective Fall 2019, students will register for the Gate courses through A.S.I.S.T in the same manner that registration for traditional classes are done. Hybrid/Online students can also get registered for Gate courses by contacting LUO Advising. Students must register for these courses by the registration deadlines for A term courses set by the Registrar’s office.
