MSW Admissions

Applying to the MSW program is a two-step process:

MSW Athens Campus Applicants:

The deadline to submit completed MSW applications for enrollment in Fall Semester 2016 for the Athens Campus is February 15, 2016. Any applications received and completed after February 15, 2016 will be reviewed on a space-available basis.

MSW Gwinnett Campus Applicants:

The deadline to submit completed applications for Fall Semester 2016 for the MSW Part-Time Program at the UGA Gwinnett campus has been extended to July 1, 2016.

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 (, (706) 542-5428). Plan to attend an information session or come see us.
