    Distance Learning for Social Work

    Hello! This is my first post and I'm hoping for some help. I have taken some courses intermittently since graduating HS in 1996, so I have some credits, but not entirely sure what will transfer into what programs. I would like to work toward my MSW , doing it slowly and on-line now to begin with and finishing it out by transferring every thing to a local college as I get closer to completion. I'm unsure how to proceed but would like to do my initial requirements as inexpensively as possible, and on-line. I think a school with an Associates or Bachelors in Human Studies is pretty close and would help me hit the majority of my requirements to move into a MSW in a few years.

    Any suggestions? I'm mainly finding the big names in on-line schools that are charging $300-$500 a credit hour. Are there better options out there? I'm in Massachusetts if that makes a difference.

    Thank you in advance!
