Post-MSW PEL: School Social Work

Aurora University participates in the NC-SARA state authorization reciprocity agreement consortium. As a participating member, AU Online may offer online programs to students who live in all states with the exception of California. At this time, California has elected not to participate in the initiative. AU Online does not accept applications from individuals who reside in California, and current students who move to California during the course of their studies may be unable to complete their programs with AU Online.

Our online degree programs are designed to help you succeed.
