Abstract This article provides an overview of the gatekeeping process, including Council on Social Work Education (CWSE) requirements for gatekeeping, with an emphasis on small baccalaureate social work programs. Gatekeeping criteria, including admission to the social work major, admission to field instruction, and approval for graduation are reviewed. Also, criteria for the development and monitoring of termination policies are highlighted as well as legal considerations relative to due process, program liability, and serving students with disabilities. A sample gatekeeping policy used in one small baccalaureate social work program is provided. (Journal abstract.)
