Part-time students are required to inform the SSW Registrar's Office of their enrollment plans each term. Once admitted to the evening/weekend part-time MSW Program and after enrollment, students are expected to follow their enrollment plan. If, after initial enrollment in the program, a student is unable to enroll for one or more expected terms, then withdrawal from the program is required. To re-enroll, the student must complete and submit a reapplication form to the School's Office of Student Services at least six weeks prior to the term in which the student wishes to re-enroll.

Field Education

All MSW students including evening/weekend part-time students will complete a total of 912 field hours. An employment-based field option may be available for students currently employed in social work-related positions. Please note that there are only a limited amount of evening/weekend field options available.

Application

Students applying for admission to the MSW Program and selecting a part-time option must meet the same admission criteria established for all students admitted to the Master of Social Work Program. Applicants must submit a brief statement describing why they are applying for admission to the part-time MSW program and their plans for completion of MSW degree requirements. Applicants must indicate the part-time schedule they plan to complete (evening/weekend or day options). Only a limited number of students are admitted to the part-time program each year. Students enrolling in courses as non-degree students are not considered to be enrolled in the part-time MSW program.

Deadline

December 1, 2020 is the early application deadline. We are accepting applications for the Fall 2021 semester until August 1, 2021.
