All MSW students must select a specialized pathway from one of the eight pathways offered by the School:
The average incoming student GPA is 3.5 over the past 60-75 semester credit hours (90 - 105 quarter credit hours) on the undergraduate transcripts provided at the time of application. However, GPA is only one of the criteria utilized for admission and applicants with GPAs lower than 3.5 are often offered admission. There is no minimum GPA.
Both tracks or curriculum schedules are four semesters in length; however 16 month students attend courses and complete fieldwork over the spring/summer semester whereas 20 month students do not.

The 2018-2019 student budget for tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies, and personal expenses is $51,412 for Michigan residents; $68,112 for non residents for two semesters of full-time enrollment. The Regents of the University set tuition and fees in July of each year; so costs are subject to increase each year.
