Master of Social Work Application Process

Is social work the right field for you? Does National University’s MSW program fit your needs as a student? The only way you can answer these questions is by researching the profession and your educational options. If you’ve made it to this page, you’ve clearly already started the research process. NU’s application process is designed to guide applicants through a series of questions and information that will help educate them about the field of social work and about licensure in their state. You will work with a specially trained Enrollment Team at National University to complete all of the required application materials. We accept applications year-round and do not have to wait to fill cohorts before starting a new class. Basically, the sooner you begin the application process, the sooner you can get started on your education journey. Contact an Enrollment Advisor today at 1-866-776-0331, email [email protected], or fill out the form below.

Your Enrollment Advisor and MSW faculty will review your application materials, including your application and resume. We will also set up an interview with MSW faculty to finalize the application process. After completing the application packet and an interview with MSW faculty, a decision will be made within 7 days regarding acceptance into the MSW Program. Students will need to complete a background check prior to starting their practicum. Visit the NU Catalog for additional application materials and requirements for the online MSW program.
