Tuition costs vary based upon whether a student is a Michigan resident or non-resident. Tuition estimates can be found here. If a student enters through the MasterTrack or MicroMasters MSW Program they will have additional cost for the certificate.

Curriculum

  1. Are Online MSW Program courses synchronous or asynchronous?

    Courses in the online program are both synchronous and asynchronous. Per online course each week, students should expect 2 hours of synchronous live course sessions, and around 6.5 hours of asynchronous content (for example: assignments, readings, mini-lectures, videos, discussion boards).

  2. Are there any in person meetings on campus if I am completing the MSW program online?

    Yes, all students will spend a long weekend in Ann Arbor, MI to start the program and complete an Introduction to Social Work course. Due to COVID-19, online students starting in May 2021 will complete their orientation weekend virtually. Students will also be invited to participate in the in-person graduation ceremony at the end of completing the program, but this is not required.
