Listed below are the other materials that need to be sent to the School of Social Work (for all applicants) along with instructions for assembling your application packet.
Finally, it is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure that a hard copy of the application, including references and personal statement are enclosed in one envelope; that transcripts are sent from all colleges and universities attended; and that all application materials (including transcripts) are received by the School before the deadline date and time.
