Fall 2017 BASW application deadline is April 3 (applications available in February)
The departmental BASW application for Fall 2017 admission is due April 3rd, and will be available by mid-February. We only admit BASW students for the Fall quarter; applicants must have completed 65 college credits by the start of the program, and must satisfy four prerequisites. Prospective Fall 2017 BASW students who are not yet UW students must submit this BASW application in addition to the separate, required UW Fall 2017 transfer admission application (UW’s Fall 2017 transfer deadline is February 15th ). See our Apply to BASW page for details, and the UW undergraduate admission site for general university transfer admission information.
Fall 2017 MSW application deadline is January 4 (applications available now)
The Fall 2017 Master of Social Work application is now available. The application deadline is January 4th, 2017 – we only admit students once per year, for the Fall quarter. Note that while admission is competitive, our committee evaluates candidates holistically. The GRE is not required for admission to our MSW programs, and we welcome applicants from all undergraduate majors to our full-time, two year program (MSW Day) and part-time, three year program (MSW Extended Degree Program). There is also an accelerated 10 month Advanced Standing degree opportunity (starts in July) for candidates who meet additional qualifications, including holding a qualifying Bachelor’s degree specifically in Social Work or Social Welfare.
