Applications for the academic year will be available in October. Priority will be given to applications submitted by March 1 and the final deadline to apply is April 1.
Our Advanced Standing Alternative Program (ASAP) is for students who have earned a “B” or better in all social work required courses, 3.0 undergraduate GPA, and a BSSW within the last five years. The GRE is not required for admission but you must have a 3.0 GPA to be eligible for ASAP.
If you do not meet the above requirements, you can to apply to our regular MSW program. Having a Bachelor’s degree (with at least 10 credit hours of social sciences) in any discipline will qualify you for admission. The Graduate School requires students with an undergraduate GPA below 3.0 to take the GRE.
Interested in starting sooner?
Graduate non-degree is an option for students who wish to familiarize themselves with our MSW program prior to being admitted. As a graduate non-degree student, you can take up to 7 credit hours of electives that can be transferred into the program.
