Individuals interested in obtaining a Master of Social Work qualify for the regular admission program having earned a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution, or having earned their BSW from an accredited institution more than 5 years ago.
The second-round application period is January 9, 2023, until February 17, 2023, at 11:59PM. Classes begin in July 2023.
The Regular MSW program is cohort-based and begins in the Summer (July) each year and has two options for completion:
Applicants from the October - December 2022 application cycle will be evaluated prior to processing the second round of applicants. If you completed your application between October - December you do not need to apply again.
Decisions for the October - December applications will be announced around the middle of February. Applicants to our late application period (opening soon) should anticipate receiving decisions by the end of February.
Each application cycle provides opportunities to pursue either the Regular Path (starts at the end of June) or the Advanced Standing (BSW, starts in May 2023) Degree Path.
The MSW program consists of 59 graduate-level social work credits for regular MSW students.

Advanced Generalist Core (22 cr)
