Apply for MSW
Standard MSW: March 1, 2013
Admission to the School of Social Work as a matriculated degree candidate is based on meeting the academic qualifications required of all students in the Graduate School plus an evaluation of the applicant’s potentialities for the profession of social work.
Applications are accepted or refused on the basis of breadth of background and experience or evidence of promise in the field of social work, as well as on academic preparation.
Applicants should be intellectually able, emotionally mature, interested in working with people, and potentially capable of assuming the heavy responsibilities which are inherent in social work.
The information provided in this section will serve as a guide for the application process. Included is information regarding admission requirements, process, required forms and application criteria.
The Application Process
UConn School of Social Work uses an online self-managed application process. This process places the responsibility on the applicant for the collection and submission of all documents. The application includes recommendations, personal statement, residence affidavit, and transcripts from all schools attended.
It is important to note that the School of Social Work uses a rolling admission process from September through March 1st for the following fall semester. This means that we will process applications and application packets as soon as they are received. Students who apply early can be admitted early. Since the admission process opens in early September, it is possible to be admitted before the new year. In addition, since students not only apply for admission to the school, but to a specific concentration, early applications have a greater chance of their preferred concentration not being full.
