Decision Notification and Accepting Your Offer

Admitted Students

Applicants applying for the Advanced Standing Traditional/On-Campus program are typically informed of a decision between February and April. Most applicants for the fall program are informed of a decision between March and May.  Applicants for the 100% Online and Professional Credit Course Spring start are notified by December. Applicants will be notified of an offer of admission by email and they may also check their status online. Written notification of a change of address must be submitted to the School of Social Work AND the Office of Graduate Admissions.

The School consistently receives more qualified applications than it has available space. Therefore, once an applicant receives an offer of admissions, they must confirm their plans to attend the program by completing the Acknowledgment of Admissions form AND by submitting a non-refundable two hundred dollar ($200) deposit to the School of Social Work.

Accepted students may choose to defer their admission offer for one year by submitting a written request to the School of Social Work. The non-refundable deposit is required in order to defer your enrollment.

Denial Decisions

Due to the competitive nature of our application review and a limited number of seats, we are unable to admit all of the promising applicants to the School.  While admission decisions are final, applicants who are denied admission to the School are welcome apply for a future semester.  If you decide to reapply, we encourage you to review the reapplication process and also consider taking Professional Credit Courses to strengthen your application.
