The MSW program annual application cycle begins on September 1. You may start creating an account and begin submitting materials online to SocialWorkCAS. Applicants must submit application and payment by December 1 to be considered for admission.
SocialWorkCAS is an online portal six-step process that allows applicants to use one set of materials to apply to multiple programs. It is the applicant’s responsibility to complete and submit all supporting documentation in a timely manner. After the required materials have been received, the application is verified to ensure coursework entered by applicant matches official transcript. The verification process may take up to four weeks to complete.
After creating an account and designating program of interest, applicants request transcripts for each school attended. A transcript matching form will be sent to the college registrar for request of official transcript with instructions to send directly to SocialWorkCAS Transcript Processing Center. Transcripts sent to Graduate School or MSW office are not accepted.
During the admission cycle, the MSW program assistant will contact applicants by phone or email to communicate various information. Please ensure the correct contact information is available for Graduate School and SocialWorkCAS.
Completed applications submitted by December 1 are considered for review. The MSW program assistant and director will begin reviewing all materials submitted and verifying pre-requisites during the month of December to prepare faculty review assignments.
MSW faculty review process begins January. Once the faculty reviews are complete, the Admissions Committee will review and determine applicant decisions. Program assistant coordinates with the Graduate School to deliver formal letters to applicants in early February.
