Early application for financial aid is strongly encouraged. Applicants to the MSW degree program are encouraged to submit the School of Social Work financial aid application at the same time they submit their admissions application materials. However, financial aid applications may be submitted at any time during the admissions process. Later submission of financial aid forms may result in the awarding of less grant or scholarship aid.
The financial aid application page will be added to the online MSW application upon answering "Yes" to the Getting Started question of "Are you applying for financial aid?"

Some scholarship and Graduate Student Services Assistantships may be allocated to early applicants. Be sure to check the School of Social Work Financial Aid website for further information regarding these options.
Notification of most grant and scholarship awards will generally occur with admission notification provided all financial aid materials have been received.
Incoming student financial aid awards are made for three or four terms depending on applicant choice of curriculum schedule. Financial aid funding from University and School of Social Work sources is generally limited to a maximum of four terms for students enrolled in the MSW program, three terms for advanced standing students and dual degree students. Current and future awards may be adjusted based on a review of additional relevant information. Students who fail to maintain good academic standing may be ineligible for future financial aid until their probationary status is removed.
