MSW Applicants: Advanced Standing Athens and Advanced Standing Gwinnett

The deadline to submit completed MSW applications for Advanced Standing enrollment in Summer Semester 2018 is February 1, 2018. Any applications received and completed after February 1, 2018 will be reviewed on a space-available basis.

The deadline to submit completed MSW applications for Full-time and Extended-time enrollment in Fall Semester 2018 is February 15, 2018. Any applications received and completed after February 15, 2018 will be reviewed on a space-available basis.

Applications are considered complete, when the following items are received in the School of Social Work, 279 Williams Street, The University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602:

For faster processing, we recommend that you submit your entire School of Social Work application (application, narrative, resume, and 3 recommendation letters) all together in one packet. Have your reference writers return their letters to you, in a sealed envelope with their signature across the back flap, so that you may then submit them in your application packet.

Please direct all questions about admissions to the MSW Program to Dr. Leon Banks (banks03@uga.edu, (706) 542-5428). Plan to attend an information session or come see us.
