Ph.D. Admission Process
Application Deadline: February 21
The Ph.D. program is open to candidates who have graduated from an accredited school of social work and have a period of post-master’s practice experience (we require a minimum of one year post-master’s experience, but prefer additional experience). We will consider applicants who do not have an M.S.W. degree but who have had closely related graduate education and postgraduate clinical practice experience.
We have a deep commitment to diversity and to the training of professionals to meet the needs of people of color. This commitment is reflected in the development of a diverse student body as well as diversity in the school’s faculty and staff.
Requesting a Deferral
The Admission Committee accepts requests for deferral for a one year period. To request a deferral, submit the Admission Reply Form and the $500 non-refundable Tuition Deposit by the deadline outlined in the offer of admission along with your written request for deferral. Approval notifications are sent within two weeks, at which time a non-refundable Deferral Fee of $150 is due. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
The Admission Committee may initiate an interview if it feels one would be helpful; otherwise, interviews are not required in the application process. Informational interviews to discuss details of the program and questions about the application process are available by appointment by emailing email@example.com.
