Admission Procedures

Application materials for formal admission to the major can be obtained in the Department of Social Work office or you can download an application. Specific directions and examples can be found within the packet.

In order to schedule an interview with the admissions coordinator, Glenn Stone, students must have been recommended for admission by at least one other 200-level faculty whose classes they have taken. 

Students will complete the admission packet and submit to the admissions coordinator at least five days prior to the scheduled admissions interview. He will review all admissions materials and meet with the applicant. Application materials must demonstrate writing skills adequate for entry-level social work practice. Contact Glenn Stone, admission coordinator, or Alison Gillespie, administrative coordinator, to schedule your admission interview.

At the conclusion of the interview, acceptance to the major is indicated. Further descriptive detail can be found in the admissions packet.
