MSW Application Procedures

Applicant materials are sent to those requesting admissions information regarding our MSW program.  Each must apply to both the Graduate Studies Admissions Office and the Department of Social Work’s MSW Program.  All application packages, therefore, must be completed:  1.) the “Application for Admission into Graduate Studies,” and 2.) the entire application packet for admission into the MSW program must be submitted to Graduate Studies.  The admissions application for the MSW program contains several University and Departmental forms that must be completed prior to the evaluation for admission.  Applications completed after this deadline will be reviewed only if there is a reasonable likelihood that space will be available in the incoming fall class.  Interested persons are urged to begin the application process far in advance of the June 1st deadline, as the school reserves the right to close the application cycle at an earlier date if all available slots are filled.  Additionally, financial aid packages for the upcoming academic year are awarded to newly-admitted graduate students at the end of the previous spring semester, making early application particularly important.  International applicants should complete their application by March 30th to ensure review of their completed folders.  Students who fail to enroll in the semester they are admitted must reapply for admission to a future academic year and are not guaranteed automatic admission in any future year.   The deadline for admissions for the Fall semester is June 30th and the deadline for the Spring Semester is November 1st.  See advanced standing tab for application deadlines. Please note that given the sequencing of courses in the MSW program, those admitted in the spring semester can ONLY take select elective courses, not required courses.
