MSW Program Admissions - FAQ


  How do I apply?


The application process is completely online.  Click here to begin the process.



When is the application deadline?


Applications should be submitted as early as possible.  Our “priority” deadline for receiving completed applications is March 15 of each year – we begin reviewing applications and accepting students at that time.


We continue to accept completed applications after the priority deadline, but since we accept only a limited number of students into the program each year, the opportunity to be accepted decreases as time passes and available slots are filled.
