Applicants to the undergraduate program must have completed 57 credits with a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative gradepoint average, as well as having met general University requirements (pre-requisite courses for applying to the Undergraduate program are listed below). Applicants to the graduate program must hold a Bachelor's degree.  Applicants with a cumulative grade point average of less than 2.5 will not be considered for admission to the graduate and undergraduate programs.  The Graduate Record Exam is not required for admission.

Applications are accepted for admission only for the Fall semester; we only admit once a year. The deadline for all applications is March 1st.  All supporting documents must be postmarked by this date.

Forty-three percent of applicants to the MSW program are accepted; 45 percent are accepted to the BSW program. Ninety-five percent of enrolled MSW students and 98 percent of enrolled BSW students complete the requirements for the degree. A survey of MSW graduates indicated that 90 percent of those responding to the questionnaire were employed in social work and 85 percent had obtained employment within three months of graduation.
